PM says SBI may begin its work in half a year

Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has said he believes that the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) may begin its work in half a year.

He said this in an interview with the 112 Ukraine television channel, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Everything that concerns budget financing, administrative support in creation, we [the government] will provide it. I understand that in six months this structure [SBI] could begin its work and engage in the investigation of crimes," Groysman said. 

He also said that the SBI should become an effective law enforcement agency. "Law enforcement bodies do not have sufficient trust in society, and trust can be won by one thing - actions, and if they promised publicity and transparency, they have to do it," Groysman said.

On Thursday, November 23, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed a decree appointing Roman Truba as SBI director.
