The two key challenges in the process of selection of the judges of the High Anti-Corruption Court (hereinafter - the HAC) are to ensure participation in the competitive selection of the maximum number of transparent and principled professionals and to create conditions under which they will be able to make legal decisions without interference with their activity. This was emphasized by the Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) Artem Sytnyk at the expert discussion "Competition to the High Anti-Corruption Court. Quo vadis? ", which took place on September 5, 2018, in Kyiv.
On Wednesday, 29 March 2016, the Kyiv Commercial Court sustained the second of five claims filed by the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine and invalidated Claim Assignment Agreement between Zaporizhyaoblenergo OJSC and Energomerezha Holding Company.
The court invalidated the agreement according to which Zaporizhyaoblenergo OJSC transferred the debt claim on the Zaporizhya Titanium-Magnesium Plant debt amounting to more than 112,3 million UAH to the Energomerezha Holding Company.
Multi-staged open competition, work of the Internal Control Department and group work of the Bureau's detectives allowed the NABU to minimize risks of corruption and power abuse among its employees. This was announced by Gizo Uglava, the First Deputy Director of the NABU in his interview to the “Novoye Vremya” magazine.
He expressed his belief that corruption risks and offences are eliminated at the stage of competitive selection.
