This year the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine also joined EPAC – European Partners against Corruption, a network of European anti-corruption organisations. This was announced by the NABU Director Artem Sytnyk after his participation in the 15th EPAC/EACN Annual Professional Conference in Paris on 18-20 November.
“First of all EPAC means high professional standards uniting leading anti-corruption authorities of European countries.
EPAC includes such members as the European Anti-Fraud Office, Great Britain's National Crime Agency, Austria's Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption, France's Central service for the Prevention of Corruption, Poland's Central Anti-Corruption Bureau etc. The fact that the NABU was included in its ranks indicates high level of trust put in us by out European partners, and we are very grateful for this trust,” - said Artem Sytnyk.
He emphasised that EPAC is a platform for cooperation between Europe's leading anti-corruption institutions.
Let us recall that EPAC brings together more than 60 anti-corruption authorities and police oversight bodies from Council of Europe Member Countries. The network was founded in 2001 during the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Since 2008 the EPAC members hold annual professional conferences to share experience and increase cooperation.
