Creation of Anti-corruption court: the attorney pointed at drawbacks of the law
02.03.2018
Creation of Anti- corruption court where the foreigners will have great influence says that the Ukrainian authorities admitted ineffectiveness of existing own judicial system. That is the point of view given on air by attorney Igor Fomin.

“To my point of view, we say and claim that our judicial system cannot fight corruption. We have courts of the first instance, courts of Appeal, the Supreme Court, and now we claim that current judicial system is incapable. We claim that we need some new court to fight corruption” he said.

According to him, one more judicial inspection will not be able to affect the fight against corruption crimes.

“I have read this bill. It is some kind of hybrid court combining investigative judge, the judge of the first instance and the Court of Appeal. I don’t know how it will help Ukraine. Maybe with funding” attorney thinks.

At the same time the attorney is sure that native courts would deal easily with such problems by themselves.

“Nowadays, we don’t trust to our courts, we don’t trust to judges, and we don’t trust to our citizens. They just have to move to another country in this case. We have plenty of sophisticated, honored, intelligent people, among judges as well. Why can’t they hear these cases?” Fomin added.

Besides, the attorney paid attention that the foreigners have no idea of native judiciary. “They focus on the role of foreign representatives. They want to grant more active role exactly to foreigners, representatives of donors, international organizations, who initiated the creation of such court. First of all, there is the law stating who deals with selection of judges in any courts. Secondly, I don’t understand why we need this. How will he select our judge? Did he take part with him in one process? Does he know how principled this person is? What are the criteria for selection” he summed up.

As reported in Obozrevatel, President Poroshenko announced introduction of the bill on Anti-corruption court to Verkhovna Rada as far back as December 15.

On December 21, Rada scrapped the bill on Creation of Anti-corruption court by Member of Parliament from Samopomich Party Egor Sobolev unfreezing the possibility to register similar bill by Poroshenko. On March 1, Verkhovna Rada took as the basis President’s bill on Creation of Supreme Anti-corruption Court (№7440) in the first reading.
