The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) has begun analyzing the data regarding candidates for the positions of judges for the new composition of the Supreme Court of Ukraine. The first findings have already been submitted to the Public Integrity Council.
High Qualification Commission of Judges
The National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine sent materials concerning corruption risks on ten judges to the High Qualification Commission of Judges. Eight of them have successfully passed recertification afterwards. This may be the sign of the system resisting the fight against corruption – said Artem Sytnyk, the NABU director.
The National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine detectives are investigating 13 criminal proceedings concerning Ukrainian judges, as reported by Artem Sytnyk, the Bureau's director.
“Combating corruption in the judicial branch of power is one of our priorities. Over the last two months we have exposed four judges of receiving improper advantage. The information concerning property and foreign trips of certain judges uncovered during the investigations is shocking,” - said Mr Sytnyk.
