Two-day Training of Trainers on “Judicial practice of adjudication of corruption offences involving covert investigative operations” takes place on 6-7 December 2018, at the National School of Judges (NSJ) in Kyiv, Ukraine. The training brings together some 20 judges, representing Kyiv and five regional branches of the NSJ in Dnipropetrovsk, Chernyvtsy, Kharkiv, Lviv, and Odesa oblasts.
The training aims at increasing the candidate trainers’ training skills and knowledge of respective European and international human rights standards related to covert investigative operations, national normative framework and recent developments in its interpretation by higher courts, with focus on adjudication of corruption offences.
The training curriculum and materials for this course have been developed by the Council of Europe expert in close cooperation with the members of the working group of the NSJ. It will become part of the system of compulsory regular education of judges implemented by the National School of Judges of Ukraine, thus contributing to strengthening the overall capacity of Ukrainian judiciary to adjudicate corruption offences.
This activity is organised as part of the European Union/Council of Europe Partnership for Good Governance Project “Fight against Corruption in Ukraine” implemented since January 2015.
