The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has agreed to extend the procedure for launching an anti-corruption court in Ukraine.

It follows from the final version of the memorandum on cooperation with the IMF obtained by Ukrainski Novyny news agency.

If initially the IMF offered to formalize the obligation to adopt in the Verkhovna Rada the legislation to ensure the work of anti-corruption courts by the end of March 2017, the final version of the memorandum suggests that the legislative framework is to be prepared and submitted to the parliament until mid-April and adopted by mid-June.

The procedure for the selection of judges of the High Qualification Commission and submission of their candidacies by the High Council of Justice to the president of Ukraine for appointment should be held before mid-January 2018.

An anti-corruption court should begin its work before the end of March 2018.

Ukraine's Finance Minister Oleksandr Danyliuk has confirmed that in accordance with the agreement with the IMF, the legislative framework for ensuring the work of anti-corruption courts should be developed and submitted to the Verkhovna Rada by mid-April and adopted by mid-June 2017.
