The bill on the Anticorruption Court complies with the norms of the Constitution and recommendations of the Venice Commission. This was reported in the Administration of the President of Ukraine, informs Interfax-Ukraine.

"The draft law on the Anti-Corruption Court has been developed in accordance with the Constitution of Ukraine and in accordance with the recommendations of the Venice Commission.Today, the draft law is in the Verkhovna Rada, therefore all discussions about certain norms should be held within the legal framework in the Ukrainian parliament," the Presidential Administration states.

We recall, on December 23, 2017, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko registered in the Verkhovna Rada bill on the Anti-Corruption Court. Earlier we wrote about what the document assumes and what it is criticized for.

At the same time, the International Monetary Fund notified the Ukrainian authorities that the adoption of the presidential draft law on the Anti-Corruption Court in its current version is a violation of Kyiv's obligations to the IMF and contradicts the recommendations of the Venice Commission.
