The Director of the National anti-corruption Bureau (NAB) Sytnyk advocates the establishment until 2018 anti-corruption court. He stated this during the public forum the day of the fight against corruption, which was broadcast channel “112 Ukraine”.

“I’m pretty sure the next step… is to create up to the end of 2017, a Special anti-corruption court,” – said Sytnik.

We will remind, earlier the head of delegation of European Union to Ukraine Hugues Mingarelli said that Ukraine needs to create a specialized anti-corruption court as soon as possible.

June 2, 2016, the Verkhovna Rada adopted in the second reading and in whole draft law №3524 “On amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine (justice)”, which is the basis of judicial reform. In addition, the Parliament adopted the bill No. 4734 “On judicial system and status of judges”, earlier submitted to the Parliament by the President of Ukraine as urgent. Both documents enter into force on 30 September 2016.

Today, December 9, marks the international day of counteraction of corruption. On this day in 2003 in the Mexican city of Merida on the Political high-level conference was opened for signature the UN Convention against corruption, adopted by the UN General Assembly on November 1, 2003. The document obliges the signatory States to declare a criminal offence of bribery, embezzlement of budget funds and laundering of corruption proceeds. According to one Convention, it is necessary to return funds to the country from where they came as a result of corruption. Ratified in October 2006 this agreement, Ukraine has shown the intention of introducing preventive, next to repressive forms of anti-corruption in line with international best practices and experience in this field.
