Ukraine to criminalise illegal enrichment
KIEV 11 Sep (ANA) - Ukraine’s parliament on Wednesday approved a bill that criminalises state officials illegally enriching themselves.
The bill must be voted on again in order to take effect. Parliament needs to pass the law as a likely condition of more aid from the International Monetary Fund.
Ukraine passed a law criminalising illicit enrichment in 2015 but the constitutional court overturned the law in February, sparking concern among anti-corruption campaigners, the anti-corruption bureau and Ukraine’s overseas backers.(ANA)
