The Draft Law initiated by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and said to tackle the situation after the infamous Constitutional Court's decision on NABU actually opens the way for a complete reset of the agency and attack on its institutional independence.
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.
