The presidential bill on the creation of the anti-corruption court does not meet the terms of the program of the International monetary Fund. This was stated by the head of the IMF mission in Ukraine Jost Longman in an interview Hromadske.ua.
“What really identifies is the need to establish an independent anti-corruption court, to gain independent judges of impeccable reputation-to run the court without delay. On the bill there was a broad consensus (among international partners and donors) – the document in its present form does not provide the above-mentioned results, it does not meet the requirements of the IMF program, as well as the recommendations of the Venice Commission. Now you need to take a step back and provide legislation that will strengthen the successful fight against corruption among officials,” said the official.
Among other requirements, the official calls the increase in gas prices, the privatization process, pension, and land reform.
He noted that the establishment of an independent anti-corruption court – a key requirement for the next phase of the audit, which should define, whether Ukraine will receive the next tranche from the IMF.
