Danish Ambassador visits NABU

Strengthening international cooperation and NABU's readiness for the challenges of post-war recovery were among the topics discussed during a meeting between NABU executives and the delegation from the Kingdom of Denmark, led by Ambassador Ole Egberg Mikkelsen.

NABU Director Semen Kryvonos expressed his gratitude, first and foremost, for Denmark's the long-term support of the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative in Ukraine (EUACI).

"I am sincerely grateful to our partners for their technical, expert and financial support of the EUACI. I would like to express special thanks for assistance in developing the eCase MS system, which has undoubtedly enhanced the efficiency of investigations and transparency of anti-corruption institutions," he said.

The parties discussed the latest legislative initiatives necessary for the effective operation of NABU. This includes, primarily, expanding the staff of the Bureau by 300 employees, establishing an autonomous forensic institution, and implementing NABU's right to independent wiretapping.

The participants of the meeting also addressed the issue of strengthening NABU's presence in the regions against the backdrop of the recovery and reconstruction process in Ukraine.
