Adoption of amendments to the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine, envisaged by the draft law No. 8336, eliminates disadvantages of the so-called "Lozovyi's amendments" regarding the appointment of expert assessments in virtually all proceedings, except those investigated by the Detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU). In addition, the proposed initiatives can threaten the independence of the NABU and complicate the investigation of top-corruption crimes.
Two employees of the Forensic Laboratory of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) received a certificate of an expert on computer-technical research according to the criteria of the International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists (IACIS). Currently they are the only ones in Ukraine who have received this qualification confirmation.
