IMF demands that Ukraine creates anti-corruption court


The anti-corruption reform is one of the key prerequisites for continuation of Ukraine's cooperation with the International Monetary Fund.

This was announced by IMF Resident Representative Goesta Ljungman in an interview to LIGA.net, Censor.NET reports.

Corruption is an extremely important issue that needs to be solved, Ljungman said. In 2015, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau was set up. Now the reform needs to be continued, so that the anti-corruption cases were considered immediately and legally perfectly in the courts, the IMF representative said. He added that the anti-corruption court is the best solution.

Ljungman also voiced the IMF requirements to the future anti-corruption judges. The procedure of selection and appointment of judges should be very strict, he said. The judges must be honest, independent, and possess knowledge on the number of issues related to anti-corruption cases, Ljungman said.
