Efficacy and Efficiency of a New System of Corruption Prevention in Ukraine (Part Two)

Оlena Yu. Busol

The second part of the article deals with the activities of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecution Office of Ukraine, the State Bureau of Investigation and other anti-corruption institutions. Following the results of research conclusion has been drawn that to ensure the national security of Ukraine it is necessary to review the mechanisms for bringing public to the work of the National Agency on Corruption Prevention. At the same time, it is necessary to introduce legislative restrictions for the selection of personnel and work of the NACP due to the lack of professionalism and incompetence, their involvement to various commissions by interested politicians and foreign advisors who were not checked by the State Security Service of Ukraine.  

The author proposes to introduce individual liability for the members of the Commission, clear criteria for selection of members of the NACP and requirements which prove the decisions of the Commission in legislation. Taking into account the conducted analysis it is necessary to change the procedure of organizing a competition to hold positions in the agency and review whether management of the NACP complied with the held positions. Only people who have a perfect reputation and a significant public standing should select members of the NACP. All employees and public officials of the Agency should undergo a polygraph.  As an alternative the NACP can join the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine which will guarantee independence from political influence.   

The main factor of the lack of progress in counteraction to corruption in Ukraine is political dependence of all anti-corruption bodies.
