Ukraine's prosecutor general denies 'war' between his office, National Anti-corruption Bureau
Ukraine's Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko has dismissed claims of a "war" between his office and the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU).
"I would like [...] to bust the myth launched by NABU's press office about a war between the Prosecutor General's Office and the National Anti-corruption Bureau," he said at the Verkhovna Rada on Tuesday evening.
He reassured the parliament that he had done and would continue to do everything to make sure that law enforcement works efficiently against corruption.
"I think the continuation of NABU's practice of being the first to 'open fire' to discredit whoever dares to question the legality of this agency's work should be stopped," Lutsenko said.
Of the 50 cases that NABU sent to courts this year, 20 were based on documents filed by the Prosecutor General's Office and the Security Service of Ukraine, he said.
"This alone shows that we are working together where the law allows [us] to move forward together," Lutsenko said.
