The National Anti-corruption Bureau (NABU) claimed that the courts sustained the sentences only towards 18 officials during the two years of work as the press service of the NABU reported at Facebook.
‘The NABU passed about 500 cases, almost 300 suspected and hundreds of the charging documents to the courts during two years of work. However, the courts do not aim to consider the cases and the sentences were sustained only towards 18 people’, the bureau claimed.
The NABU criticized the small amount of the sentences and added that the absence of them do not allow collecting the funds arrested within the investigation in a profit of the state and reimburse the inflicted damage.
‘The issue of the delaying of the court trials can be solved by the creation of the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court’, the NABU explained.
Moreover, the NABU added that the first information on the criminal violations committed by the top officials was registered on December 4, 2015.
