Samopomich MP Yehor Soboliev considers that the National Anti-Corruption Bureau and the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office did a great job breaking the mutual cover-up system in Ukraine.
“There are people in the parliament hall who are already under investigation or will be soon. There are many people like this in the Presidential Administration, in the government, in all high-ranking offices. The teams of Artem Sytnyk and Nazar Kholodnytskyi have done what we expected from them and gave them laws and taxpayers’ money for.”
However, the people’s deputy notes that those who undertake the responsibility to destroy the top corruption must be “whiter than snow” themselves.
“I believe that an investigation into the eavesdropping at Nazar Kholodnytskyi’s office must be conducted according to all rules. Not the way the investigation of the records from the office of the Deputy Minister of the Internal Affairs with the participation of Arsen Avakov’s son was conducted. Not as the investigation of the records made by Oleksandr Onyshchenko in the office of Petro Poroshenko is now being conducted. I want all the key persons involved in this story to be identified and held accountable,” says Yehor Soboliev.
Therefore, he urged the parliament to realize the depth of responsibility in this situation: “Very many corrupt officials are dreaming of doing away with the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office and making the work of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau impossible – because the law is written in such a way that the detectives of the Bureau will hardly be able to work without the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor.
Therefore, I urge the parliament to focus on our part of the work – to make for them a real and independent Anti-Corruption court.”
