IMF: the Law on Anticorodal does not meet the conditions


Getting to Kiev the next tranche from the IMF depends on how quickly and effectively the authorities will launch an anti-corruption court in Ukraine.

The bill of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on the establishment of Anticorruption court does not meet the terms of the program of the International monetary Fund. This was stated by the head of the IMF mission in Ukraine Jost Longman in the interview The public.

"What really identifies is the need to establish an independent anti-corruption court, to gain independent judges of impeccable reputation-to run the court without delay. On the bill there was a broad consensus (among international partners and donors) – the document in its present form does not provide the above-mentioned results, it does not meet the requirements of the IMF program, as well as the recommendations of the Venice Commission", – said Longman.

In his opinion, now we need to step back and provide legislation that will strengthen the successful fight against corruption among officials.

Jost Longman noted that the establishment of an independent anti-corruption court – a key requirement for the next phase of the audit, which should define, whether Ukraine will receive the next tranche from the IMF.

Among other requirements, he said that the increase in gas prices, the privatization process, pension, and land reform.

Recall, The European Union needs to create the Anti-corruption court before the election.

On the eve of President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko promised that the anti-corruption court will be established this year.
