The adoption of the Law on the Highest Anticorruption Court without discussion of positions with the International Monetary Fund and our Western partners may cost a lot for Ukraine and will lead to the failure of anticorruption reform.
Such a statement was made by the Member of Ukrainian Parliament, the author of the alternative Draft Law on the creation of the Anticorruption Court of Ukraine, Valeriy Pysarenko.
According to the Politician's words, the recent changes to the Draft Anti-corruption Law were not agreed directly with the IMF. In particular, the amendment on the right of veto to the Council of International Experts on the candidacy of a judge of the Supreme Anticorruption Court, the Ukrainian authorities adopted without taking into account international recommendations.
Valeriy Pysarenko believes that this fact may affect further cooperation with the IMF and support of Ukraine by Western partners.
"Now the authorities will have to prove by their actions that the Anticorruption Court of Ukraine is a judicial institution independent of any pressure", - the Parliamentarian summed up.
