The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko should withdraw the bill on the establishment of an anti-corruption court. This opinion in comments to the edition «GORDON» was expressed by the MP, Deputy head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on preventing and combating corruption Viktor Chumak.
«Transparency International has urged Poroshenko to withdraw the bill on the anti-corruption court and submit a new one. This is probably the best solution. To put it mildly, is a new attempt propetlyat. Do not create the court, which recommended that the Venice Commission, which wants to see civil society as an attempt to propetlyat to create something in between and fill it with things. After all, the presidential bill envisages that the anti-corruption court will consider cases that do not investigate NABOO. And such cases dealt with by the police, can be extremely a lot. That is, the court simply did not rake. The Venice Commission recommended that a decisive role in the selection of judges was played by international experts. But the bill the President they can only make recommendations,» – said the MP.
According to him, in the case of the adoption of the presidential bill will be extremely difficult to find candidates for judges of the anticorruption court.
«Besides, the draft law stipulates strict requirements to the judges. These people we all over the country for five or 10 find. The candidate must not less than five years work by a judge in Ukraine and have experience in international anti-corruption organizations. There are a number of other high requirements that can delay the establishment of this court for years. But the attempt to propetlyat not been successful. About it told the public. Yes give you have a normal bill! Let’s we accumulated. But Poroshenko doesn’t want to do. All the corruption by the authorities is limited to only words. The real action takes place only after hard pressure from international structures. And im already tired of giving money that our government just stealing,» – said Chumak.
