President to submit his draft law on the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court unless the MPs provide relevant proposals by the beginning of the next week

President Petro Poroshenko demands the Verkhovna Rada to elaborate a draft law on the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court. The Head of State emphasizes that he will submit his version of the  draft law to the Parliament unless the MPs provide this document by the beginning of the next week.

“Tomorrow it will be a month since I proposed to the Parliament to speed up the establishment of the Anti Corruption Court,” Petro Poroshenko notes on his Facebook page.

The Head of State added: “The reason was to create the best possible conditions for its quick adoption. This law should have been agreed between different political forces at the drafting stage”.

“My proposal is still on the table. However, if I do not see progress at the beginning of the next week, I will prepare the relevant draft law myself and submit it to the parliament in 7-10 days,” Petro Poroshenko said.

The President also urged the MPs to remove the current draft law “On Anti-Corruption Courts” from the agenda as recommended by the Venice Commission with a view to opening the possibility to present a new draft law.
