Committee head, Samopomich MP Yehor Soboliev told journalists, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.
"There are two options as I see them: to vote and support the recommendation to the parliament to appoint Robert Storch... If they lack willpower for that, I will propose announcing another competition, to search for people like Robert around the globe," Soboliev said.
The MP says it's next to impossible to select a Ukrainian for the NABU auditor post because the position stipulates for experience in international courts, prosecutor's offices, and anticorruption organizations.
Soboliev said the Committee will consider this matter on March 22.
Today, more MPs supported British Nigel Brown but were not able to approve his candidacy -- he scored only 200 votes out of 226 needed.
As reported, Yehor Soboliev said on Feb. 23 about the attempt to appoint "a certain British national Mr. Brown" as an independent auditor of the NABU. On March 16, several members of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Corruption Prevention and Counteraction recommended two candidates for the NABU auditor. According to Soboliev, that decision was illegitimate. Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB) faction MP Mustafa Nayyem said: "PPB and People's Front members tampered the documents and shoved "British national Nigel Brown" who appeared as if from nowhere."
