Yurii Lutsenko said: "NABU (The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine) apprehended seven prosecutors during the same period of time. It is a good contribution to our campaign of cleansing the ranks of the prosecutor's office from traitors and bribetakers. A total of 143 persons started to be tried in May-August, or their cases have already been referred to courts. They include 10 prosecutors, 100 National Police officers, 28 members of the State Fiscal Service, and five SBU officers.

"This means that we have got a sound basis for cooperation. The head of each agency clearly promised not to cover members of his/her agency who violated the oath or turned out to be bribetakers or traitors. We appreciate any help," he stressed.
