The team of the new President believes that it is necessary to create a single institutional body that will deal with economic and financial affairs, while private business will do what it has to do – develop the economy.
To fight corruption, the team of President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky plans to cancel parliamentary immunity, restart anti-corruption bodies and reduce pressure on business.
This was stated on the “Nin Vzhe” program on Hromadsky TV by Galina Yanchenko, Head of the Council of Public Control at the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU), which is part of the Zelensky’s team.
“Deputy’s immunity should be a thing of the past, the NACP has been restarted, I hope the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office is restarted too, at least it’s leadership,” she noted.
Also an important step is to reduce the pressure on business, says Yanchenko.
“We know that today economic and financial matters are investigated by anyone who wants to, both by the SSU and the tax authorities. We still even have a tax police! All this needs to be removed so that people can move forward, develop the economy, create new jobs. Therefore – [it is necessary to create – ed.] a single body that will be engaged in economic and financial affairs, while private business will do what it has to do – develop the economy,” Yanchenko said.
In Zelensky’s election program, there is an item on the abolition of the powers of all law enforcement agencies to investigate economic crimes, as well as the creation of a separate body to investigate such cases.
