President Petro Poroshenko signed decrees that appointed 38 judges of the Supreme Anticorruption Court and the Appeals Chamber of the Supreme Anticorruption Court.
38 new judges will begin to perform their duties in a completely new court… You have all the tools and means to be successful,” Poroshenko said.
According to Poroshenko, despite the fact that the court has not yet been set up, the relevant premises have already been allocated for its activities.
“By signing orders for an appointment, I carefully looked at the composition of the court… I am glad that judges, scientists, and lawyers will work in the court,” the president noted.
An anticorruption court must work before the beginning of the summer. All cases concerning top corrupt officials will be in its jurisdiction, even those that were already in ordinary courts.
Recall, the High Council of Justice has considered 39 candidates for positions to the Anti-corruption court and recommended Poroshenko to appointed 35 of them.
