The delegation of the European Union to Ukraine urged to cancel the draft law 'On amendments to the laws concerning the provision of the parliamentarian control' that offers to provide the Verkhovna Rada to express the distrust to the heads of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU), the State Investigation Bureau, Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) and members of the National Agency for Preventing Corruption (NAPK). It is reported at Facebook of the delegation of the EU to Ukraine.

'The draft law that simplifies the dismissal of the NABU director and heads of the anti-corruption bodies contradicts the fight against corruption in Ukraine, the reforms and commitments of the plan on the visa liberalization. The draft law should be rejected. Ukraine should strengthen but not weaken the anti-corruption establishments', the delegation said.

The leaders of 'Petro Poroshenko Bloc' Artur Gerasimov and 'Narodny Front' Maksym Burbak registered a draft law 'On amendments to the laws concerning the provision of the parliamentarian control' that offers to provide the Verkhovna Rada to express the distrust to the heads of the NABU, the State Investigation Bureau, SAP and members of the NAPK.
