The creation of the Supreme Anti-corruption Court of Ukraine will finish in February 2019 as presidential press service reported citing speech of President Poroshenko in Davos.
“I want to assure that we will not stop the reforms, we will not stop the fight against corruption. In February, we will complete the procedure for the creation of the Anticorruption Court together with NABU and SAP, which are completely independent. 2600 corrupt officials have already received court decisions and they are in prison,” Poroshenko claimed.
The Ukrainian leaders noted that this week the National Bank of Ukraine got the international award Central banking awards from a magazine about central banks activity and Сentral banking financial regulator for transparency in the bank sector.
"This is the result of our fight against corruption in the banking sector," he said. Poroshenko assured foreign businessmen and politicians that authorities of Kyiv consistently work on the improvement of the investment climate in Ukraine. The improvement of Ukraine’s position in Doing Business rating in five points is the evidence for it.
We recall that in June, 2018, the law on the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court came into effect in Ukraine, as well as a formal law on the creation of the Anti-Corruption Court. According to the documents, the Higher Anti-Corruption Court must be formed before June 14, 2019. To begin its work, it is necessary to recruit at least 35 anti-corruption judges, at least 10 of them - representatives of the Appeals Chamber.
