Constitutional Court of Ukraine has struck a blow to anti-corruption reform – NABU statement

The ruling of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, which imposes criminal liability for submitting false data to e-declaration, is political. In this way, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine not only legitimizes the intentions of politicians and officials to hide from society illegally acquired wealth, but also protects the interests of some judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine (under NABU investigations).

NABU must remain institutionally independent — the official statement of the National Bureau on the declaring unconstitutional of certain provisions of the Law "On NABU"

NABU believes that the decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, which recognized certain provisions of the Law of Ukraine "On the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine" as not in line with the Constitution of Ukraine, is attempt to block the fight against political corruption and stop cleansing of the judiciary in the state.

Artem Sytnyk remains in the position, NABU operates normally

For the first time in the history of Ukraine, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine considered the issue of the constitutionality of an act of inpidual action, despite the opposite previous long-term judicial practice. However, the fact that the Presidential Decree on Appointment on the NABU Director is declared unconstitutional does not terminate the powers of the NABU Director or any other person who is appointed by the President, and does not automatically mean his dismissal. Until the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopts the amendments to the legislation, Artem Sytnyk has the right to exercise his powers as the NABU Director. Therefore, currently NABU is operates normally.

Cooperation between NABU and ARMA strengthens the fight against corruption

The interaction of the state bodies in the assets search investigations helps to fortify the fight against corruption and resolves problems within the management of seized property. It was stressed by the Director of the Lviv Territorial Office of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) Taras Lopushanskiy and the representatives of the West Interregional Territorial Department of the National Agency of Ukraine for finding, tracing and management of assets derived from corruption and other crimes (ARMA) at the meeting on July 3, 2020.
