Verkhovna Rada Speaker Andriy Parubiy says the High Anti-Corruption Court may be created until the end of 2018, and the first cases may be considered in the first half of 2019.
"I'm sure that next year we will witness the first cases that will be considered by this court. And believe me, it will pass sentences that all Ukraine will be proud of. These sentences will change our country," Parubiy told at the Pravo Na Vladu TV panel show on June 7, the Ukrainian TSN news service reports.
According to the official, after the adoption of the law, he and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko appealed to international organizations that must submit their candidates to the Public Council of International Experts so that they can do it as soon as possible.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Verkhovna Rada passed the presidential draft law "On the High Anti-Corruption Court" in the second reading on Thursday, June 7.
