KYIV. Oct 20 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has insisted a new anti-corruption court law be drafted and said he hopes to sign the adopted legislation before the end of the year.

"I now demand and declare that representatives of all parliamentary factions should immediately begin work drafting a new law [on establishing an anti-corruption court] that takes into account all the recommendations of the Venice Commission," the president said in Kyiv on Friday.

The head of state stressed he is willing to delegate a special work group "in order that during the course of two, three weeks a commission can agree on a version of the bill."

Poroshenko expressed hope that Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada would adopt the legislation before the end of the year, so he can sign it into law.

Establishment of an anti-corruption court is one of the key demands of protesters, who began demonstrating in Kyiv on October 17.
