President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has signed the law on the Anti-Corruption Court. This is mentioned on the respective page on the website of the Parliament.
The law will take effect the day after its publication in the Holos Ukrainy newspaper, the official outlet of the Parliament.
When the law takes effect, other investigation authorities will stop accepting claims in the cases investigated by NABU (National Anti-Corruption Bureau) and SAP (Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office); other courts of the first instance will stop accepting the bills of indictment. Instead, these acts will be filed to the Supreme Appeal Court of Ukraine.
