U.S. Embassy concerned about e-declaration requirements for intl members of state enterprises' boards
The U.S. Embassy is concerned about e-declaration requirements for international members of the supervisory board at state-owned enterprises.
"While we welcome the ruling to declare e-declaration requirements for anti-corruption activists unconstitutional, we remain concerned about requirements that international supervisory board members of state-owned enterprises file assets declarations designed for government officials," the embassy said on Twitter on June 8.
"These requirements deter highly qualified experts from serving on the boards, are inconsistent with international best practices, and affect the government's ability to carry out corporate governance reform," it said.
The embassy recalled that G7 Ambassadors also highly evaluated the Ukrainian Constitutional Court's ruling on e-declarations.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine on June 6, 2019, ruled on a motion filed by the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for human rights and 65 lawmakers that mandatory electronic declaration of assets by activists fighting against corruption is not constitutional. The decision was published on June 7, 2019.
