Without an active institutional component even the world’s best anti-corruption legislation is good for nothing.
In Ukraine, the executive component is represented by NACU (National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine), which is supposed to imprison top corruptionists and NAPC (National Agency for Prevention of Corruption) – a structure which has to keep a check on declarations. There are also suggestions to establish a special anti-corruption court and to hire experienced foreign judges.
NAPC is due to start its full-fledged operations in August, however, one may notice that some of the processes are somewhat slowed down, “It is necessary to approve the form of declarations, as well as the recommendations on declarations now. Also it is necessary to approve the form of political parties’ reporting as soon as possible, so that people could see how the parties spend money,” said chairman of the Committee on Preventing and Combating Corruption, Yehor Soboliev.
