CONSTITUTIONAL COURT RULING UNDERMINES ANTI-CORRUPTION ACHIEVEMENTS IN UKRAINE

On 1 March, Transparency International reported that on 26 February, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine struck down Article 368-2 of the Criminal Code – the provision on illicit enrichment. It says that this decision greatly weakens the country’s anti-corruption efforts, undermines up to 65 open investigations and has a direct impact on 4 cases against high-ranking officials that were already before the courts.  The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine called the Court’s decision a politically motivated move that will severely impact their current investigations.
