Demonstrative arrests without replacements in personnel policy will bring no results – Soboliev

If we arrest officials under the cameras for cool PR, and we appoint the same officials to their positions – nothing will ever change.

This was stated by “Samopomich” Union faction deputy, Chairman of the Committee on Preventing and Combating Corruption Yehor Soboliev on air of Channel 24.

According to him, only a new set of people, and only the arrival to the Prosecutor’s Office, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Security Service of Ukraine of people who have not worked there, will change the situation.

“Attraction of David Sakvarelidze to the Prosecutor General’s Office and Eka Zghuladze to the Ministry of Internal Affairs shows: try and get new people involved, if necessary, even from other countries, and they will do wonders and will guarantee a proper work,” he said.

At the same time, the MP noted that not all the appointees from other countries, according to him, showed the proper result.

“I, as a representative of the Anti-Corruption Committee, would like to see more results of the office of Alexander Kvitashvili. Since we have huge problems in his ministry, which was and still is very prone to corruption,” stated the MP.
