On October 19, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine passed the law “On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine Concerning Bringing the Status of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine into Compliance with the Requirements of the Constitution of Ukraine”.

UA writes about this with reference to the Rada’s web-portal.

From now on, the NABU will become a central executive body with a special status. The Cabinet of Ministers will not be able to interfere with its activities.

In addition, the Cabinet of Ministers will appoint and dismiss the director of NABU following a competition to be held by a special commission.

The law passed also defines the features of the application of the legislation on the civil service for the independence of the NABU.

Earlier, the parliament rejected 12 resolutions repealing the so-called “anti-oligarchic” law, and also appointed its first vice chairman.
