‘I draw the attention of those people who do not believe that the Supreme Court will start to work this year and with no doubt, it will have the best structure after all years of the independence. The scientists, representatives of the best Ukrainian schools of jurisprudence will become the judges for the first time in its history. The advocates and famous rights defenders who protected the interests of the common Ukrainian citizens in the European Court of Human Rights and the judges of the first and second instances will become the judges for the first time in its history’, Poroshenko claimed.
The president emphasized that the ‘Law on the judicial organization and court status’ adopted by the Verkhovna Rada became the basis for the start of the court reform.
Also, Poroshenko appealed to the parliament with an offer to create the inter-parties task group to work out the draft law on the Anti-corruption Court. He claimed that such project is urgent for the adoption.
The Highest Justice Council announced the final list of the applicants for the posts of the judges of the Supreme Court of Ukraine on September 29.
