The National Bureau welcomes the appointment of the Deputy Prosecutor General — Head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office. We are convinced the step is crucial for preserving the independence of SAPO and increasing the efficiency of all anti-corruption bodies.

An independent head of SAPO is one of the key requirements accompanying the Ukraine's EU candidate status. Electing a new head through transparent competition is also one of Ukraine's obligations to the IMF.
