Anti-Corruption Courts

Aim

Establishment and effective functioning of Anti-corruption Courts in Ukraine

Problem

By now the level of corruption in Ukraine remains critically high. As long as there is a clan of top corrupt officials “shielded” from law the changes can hardly occur.

Establishment of Anti-Corruption Court is a chance to swiftly and effectively filter the system. Currently it is necessary to ensure legislative framework for its functioning. Not surprisingly fair and independent court has always remained a longtime aspiration of society. To make it possible, specific selection rules are to be set up for those “wearing the robes” to eliminate tangible influence of political actors and acting judges. At this rate, each servant of Themis should get enhanced guarantees for activities and distinctive mechanism for the formation of apparatus and funding of this court.

Objectives

  • formation of high quality composition of Anti-Corruption Court;
  • introduction of proper additional guarantees for such judges.
