Recently, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine (CCU) adopted its scandalous decision
regarding the constitutionality of the electronic declaration system, dismantling in a blatant and unlawful manner a big part of Ukraine's anticorruption infrastructure.
This decision has not only complicated but also at some point made impossible fight against corruption and jeopardized visa-free regime and further cooperation between Ukraine and the EU. It became obvious that further activity of this composition of the Court threatens not only other reforms, but also the national security of Ukraine. The crisis requires the solutions for three issues
- restoring the anticorruption infrastructure, destroyed by the decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine;
- ensuring the integrity of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine;
- protecting other reforms and important laws from the negative influence of the current composition of the CCU.
Possible ways of restoring the anticorruption infrastructure, were proposed by the subject-matter CSOs, in particular Center for Policy and Legal Reform
and Anticorruption Action Center
. We encourage you to read their analysis of the situation.
In this article we propose our analysis of the publicly available solutions (and some new ones) on protecting other important laws and ensuring the integrity of the CCU. These solutions are not alternatives for the ones on restoring anticorruption infrastructure but at the same time they are not mutually exclusive.
