Ukrainian nongovernmental organizations and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, or NABU, on July 13-14 criticized European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s backtracking on the requirement that Ukraine set up independent anti-corruption courts in the country.

Juncker said at an EU-Ukraine summit on July 13 that President Petro Poroshenko had persuaded him that Ukraine should create an anti-corruption panel within the existing Supreme Court instead of establishing independent anti-corruption courts.

The crucial difference is that anti-corruption courts would be created via a transparent procedure with the help of foreigners to guarantee their independence and professionalism, while anti-corruption panels would be set up within Ukraine’s unreformed and politicized judiciary.
