The Ambassadors of G7 countries welcome the decision of the Constitution Court of Ukraine to recognize the electronic declarations for anti-corruption activists as unconstitutional. The respective post appeared on Twitter.
“This long-awaited decision strengthens the supremacy of law and civilian society in Ukraine,” the message said.
As we reported, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine recognized the imposing of the electronic declarations for the public activists unconstitutional.
Earlier, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the law “On prevention of corruption” with a norm, which obliges the military to file the electronic declarations. After a while, the initiative arose to remove this norm. MP Tatiana Chornovol filed the amendment on the obligatory declaration for the representatives of the public organizations. The document was adopted with this amendment.
Up to April 1, 2018, the representatives of the public organizations, which fight against corruption, had to fill the electronic declarations. Criminal responsibility is provided if the document is not filed.
The international partners noted the inadmissibility of this norm for many times.
