Lithuania supports soonest creation of anti-corruption court in Ukraine
Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius has said he supports setting up a Specialized Anti-Corruption Court in Ukraine as soon as possible.
"We welcome the efforts of the special anti-corruption agencies of Ukraine in the fight against corruption and hope that they will continue to be able to work efficiently and independently. It is equally important that the cases that they investigate should go to court, concrete results should be achieved and convictions issued. It is important to create a specialized anti-corruption court as soon as possible," the foreign minister said at a meeting with the leadership of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine and the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office during their visit to Lithuania.
On August 28-29, representatives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) and the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office, with the support of the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative, studied the experience of Lithuanian law enforcement agencies in investigating corruption crimes, the NABU press service reported.
Representatives of NABU and SAPO met with the officers of the Prosecutor General's Office, the Special Investigation Service, the Financial Crimes Investigation Service, the Anti-Corruption and Legal Committees of the Lithuanian Parliament, the Department of Criminal Cases of the Supreme Court of Lithuania and the Constitutional Court of Lithuania.
