National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) calls for amendment of Law of Ukraine “On High Anti-Corruption Court”. According to NABU, there’s an urgent need to amend the Law of Ukraine “On the High Anti-Corruption Court.” Such an amendment would concern the provision which stipulates that the appeals against sentences of the first-instance courts made before the establishment of the High Anti-Corruption Court (HACC) not be considered in the Appeal Chamber of the HACC. Instead, they are to be considered by appeal courts of general jurisdiction. According to NABU, this provision strips the prosecution and the defence the right to have decisions reviewed by an independent judicial body in proceedings that have been investigated by the NABU over the past three years.
