"Some PGO officials are attempting to drop the system of independent examination intended for appointment of new prosecutors (heads and deputy heads of newly established local prosecutor's offices) so awaited by the Ukrainian society. This attempt is a direct signal to corrupt system of its inviolability," Sakvarelidze stated.
"It turns out a group of underachievers, who seem to have a major impact within the authority, and who got used to nepotism and bribes, do not like the fact their knowledge and skills will be checked with the help of an independent commission of the European Union. All this is in direct contravention with the presidential program of reforms and a slap in the face of the Ukrainian society," the deputy prosecutor general said.
"I hope the prosecutor general will keep his word and won't allow disruption of exams. Otherwise, I am afraid that instead of the EU, lovers of nepotism, entrenched in various prosecutor's offices, will be examined by the whole society, and it will be a much more painful process," he summarized.
