Statement: NACP's recommendations regarding the conditions of investigating offences under Articles 366-1 and 368-2 contradict the Law and cannot be applied

The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) categorically disagrees with the NACP`s (National Agency on Corruption Prevention) decision №1375 of December 18, 2017, in which the Agency interprets certain provisions of the Law of Ukraine «On Corruption Prevention» regarding the investigation of offences under Articles 366-1 and 368-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

Attempts to limit the independence of the NABU will cause irreversible consequences for the fight against corruption in Ukraine

On December 6, 2017, some Members of Parliament (MPs) and politicians spread statements about the need to "establish parliamentary control" over the activities of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU). As a mechanism of "control", the representatives of two fractions of ruling coalition proposed the Draft Law that eliminates the guarantees of the NABU independence completely. In particular, the Draft Law simplifies the procedure for dismissal of the NABU Director by establishing the procedure of passing a no-confidence motion against him by a simple majority of votes in the Parliament. Also the same mechanism is proposed for dismissal for the Head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) who conducts procedural guidance over the NABU investigations.
