Every fifth applicant for Anti-Corruption Agency board is corrupted
13 applicants of 53, who applied for the competition, had income discrepancy to positions held
Every fifth candidate to the National Agency for Combating Corruption either improperly issued its declaration, or has corruption risks, said "Transparency International Ukraine" legal expert Sophia Kovach.
"Unfortunately, among 53 candidates who submitted their application to join the National Agency for Combating Corruption, we found corruption risks in every fifth,” said Kovach. Corruption risks refer to income discrepancy to positions held, as well as their direct involvement in corruption scandals.
“Transparency International Team Ukraine scanned data from the candidates’ declarations and the way of their lives, analyzing data from the Cabinet, public sources, and investigative journalism materials. Ironically, the lion's share of candidates to the anti-corruption body looks like the law breakers , which should be detected by National Agency. Thus, 13 of 53 candidates who applied for the competition, hid some skeletons in the closet," according to the Transparency International statement. One of the most “curious” candidates is Artur Horin, the Head of the Management department of Ministry of Youth and Sports. His income in 2014 amounted to $150 thousand USD, what is unreal for a state official of this level.
