Petro Poroshenko, the President of Ukraine urges the Ukrainian parliament to remove the draft law on the creation of the anti-corruption court from the agenda or he will be forced to submit his own variant of the legislative initiative. Poroshenko reported this at Facebook.
'I ask the MPs to remove the old draft law 'On anti-corruption courts' from the agenda as the Venice Commission recommended and free space for the new draft law', he noted.
The president reminded that it will be a month from the day of his appeal to the parliament with the proper offer on December 8.
'If I do not see the progress in the next seven-ten days, I will prepare and submit the proper draft law', Poroshenko warned.
The draft law 'On anti-corruption courts' was registered in the Verkhovna Rada in February 2017. The MPs attempted to remove it from the hearing many times to register a new initiative but they failed to do this.
