The European Union expects that the Anti-Corruption Court in Ukraine will start working until the end of 2018. This is stated in the message on the EU website.
"We look forward to the full functioning of the court by the end of the year, and the European Union is ready to support this process," the report said.
The EU said that the fight against corruption is a key component of the association agreement between the EU and Ukraine. The European Union reminded that the anti-corruption institution should be completely independent in carrying out its task and, at the same time, not have excessive influence.
We recall that in June this year the law on the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court came into effect in Ukraine, as well as a formal law on the creation of the Anti-Corruption Court. According to the documents, the Higher Anti-Corruption Court must be formed before June 14, 2019. To begin its work, it is necessary to recruit at least 35 anti-corruption judges, at least 10 of them - representatives of the Appeals Chamber.
Later, the head of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine Artem Sytnik reported that the Anti-Corruption Court can be create in an accelerated mode in connection with the pre-election period.
