Delegation of the European Union informed that the EU has lost its confidence in the process of establishing specialized anti-corruption prosecutor's office and has so far refrained from its financing, Eurointegration.com.ua.
"The establishing of specialized and independent anti-corruption prosecution office is one of the key conditions for visa-free travel to the EU as well as for disbursement of significant EU assistance to Ukraine. However the trust to the final outcome of the procedure depends on the integrity and credibility of all steps leading to it. In this context we very much hope that concerns raised with regard to some people who participate in the selection will be soon duly addressed, thus allowing the competition of the technical part of the selection with assistance from the EU," according to the statement.
Hay Group company, which conducted the testing for persons applying for prosecutor's office refuses to conduct testing without funding, and the EU does not allocate the money.
Therefore the start of the test for the anti-corruption prosecutor's office is delayed, it poses a threat to the planned timing of the election of anti-corruption prosecutor.
