You're reading: Anti-corruption bill should be scrapped

But paradoxically, a closer look at it reveals a range of corruption risks that would neutralize all the positive effects should it be approved in its current edition.

For example, the major advantage of the bill – the clause that introduces liability for false information provided in income declarations — becomes useless once it is realized that those at fault would get away with just a penalty of Hr 425.

Obviously, corrupt officials would prefer to pay that in exchange for hiding millions of hryvnias. Transparency International Ukraine suggests that the penalty should be increased to Hr 5,100 – 17,000.
