President Zelensky submits draft bill on 'illicit enrichment' to Ukrainian Parliament. The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, has submitted the bill on the punishment for illicit enrichment by government officials to the Verkhovna Rada, reports the President’s press service.
The proposed bill provides for the confiscation of illegally acquired assets and criminal punishment for illicit enrichment, though the text is not yet available. In February, the Ukrainian Constitutional Court removed the section of the Criminal Code of Ukraine on illicit enrichment. The decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine was heavily criticized by the experts of the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative in Ukraine and the international organization Transparency International.
