G7 envoys discuss Ukraine’s judiciary reform, anti-graft program with civil society leaders

The Group of Seven ambassadors have discussed with experts and civil society representatives the reform of Ukraine’s judicial system and the anti-corruption program implementation amid the ongoing war.

That’s according to a tweet posted by diplomats on Sunday, September 18.

“G7 Ambassadors were glad to meet with experts and representatives of civil society to discuss current challenges in Ukraine’s justice reform and anti-corruption agenda under martial law. Ambassadors welcomed Ukraine’s resolve to continue reforms amidst the war,” the tweet reads.

G7 Ambassadors also agreed on the importance of independent institutions, in particular of the Special Anti-corruption Prosecutor’s Office.
