The process of creation of the Anti-corruption court could be started in fall if the parliament adopts the required legislation. The court will begin operating by summer 2018.

This was announced by National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) director Artem Sytnyk in an interview to Den' newspaper, Censor.NET reports.

"We have a number of cases we have transferred to the court, but they have been dragged out ever since. The results of NABU activities will have no sense if the anti-corruption court is not created. I have believed we need this court from the very beginning, and practice has only confirmed that," Sytnyk said.

The NABU director says there's a need to create an agency that will be "not only not corrupted, but independent from other influences, first of all political one."

"It's a final battle for creation of the Anti-corruption court. A year ago, the Presidential Administration said we didn't need one. Subsequently, influenced by the Ukraianian society and Western partners, this issue went from whether we need it to whether it will be an independent structure or a separate chamber in acting courts," Sytnyk said.
