Антикоррупционный суд начнет свою работу не ранее второй половины 2019 года – политолог

Though the message Federica Mogherini to run Antikorruptsionera court before the end of the year, the probability of this in practice is extremely low.

Comments about this correspondent of ГолосUA said political analyst Roman Bortnik.

“The likelihood that the anti-corruption court will be launched before the end of the year – is extremely small. And the first sentences and court decisions are unlikely before the second half of next year”, – said the analyst.

R. Bortnik noted that Europe, thus trying to stimulate the creation of anti-corruption court which is a tool of control and influence and an element of self-justification.

“Europe simply do not know how to deal with Ukrainian corruption, which is becoming more toxic for ACE European politicians, who work in Ukraine and they are constantly looking for more and more excuses,” said the expert.

He also expressed confidence that the Ukrainian government, despite the pressure from Europe will sabotage the conflicts that prevent the formation of this body.

“European officials see that the rate of creation of anti-corruption court are not, what they would like to see. The procedure of selection of judges is only in the second stage. In addition, the administration is also not solved. Of course, the Europeans are trying to fit the process, but most likely, the court will work only after the parliamentary elections”, – concluded R. Bortnik.

“Higher anti-corruption court completed the creation of a network of independent anti-corruption agencies, which will include NABOO and Specialized anti-corruption Prosecutor’s office. The EU stresses the need for all these institutions were entirely independent and carry out their tasks without outside influence. For this it is important that the integrity and credibility of anti-corruption spectacular and its leadership was sustained and strengthened”, – added in the EU.
