General Prosecutor’s activities and statements authorize the attack on the NABU independence

The statements of the General Prosecutor of Ukraine about the alleged illegality of work of some units of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) do not reflect the reality and sometimes also belie the common sense. As Mr Lutsenko, judging by his statements, seems not to be fully aware of the basic legal principles of the operative search activities, we inform that all NABU’s operative and search activities are guided by the requirements of the Law "On the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine" and the Law "On Operative and Search Activities". According to Article 8 of the Law "On Operational and Search Activities", regular and freelance open and undercover employees can be involved in conducting operative and search activities.
