Electronic declaration system of officials’ revenue was not properly certified, so its launch in test mode makes little sense. Delegation of the European Union (EU) and the Embassies of the Member States of the European Union in Kyiv stated this on Facebook.
"Electronic declaration of income, which the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption (NAPC) launched on August 15, has not been properly certified, so that it does not meet the objectives of securing the key legal consequences that should be the result of untruthful declarations. That is why the launch of the electronic declaration in the test mode makes little sense and, in fact, could be counter-productive", reads the statement.
The failure of issuing technical certificates in time due to technical faults is the contrary to public statements made by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and other "reliable experts".
"They clearly emphasize that the system fully complies with international standards and can now be used for the collection and publication of declarations perfectly legal way. It is a task that NACP must now fulfill", reads the statement.
