U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt called on the Ukrainian President and the Verkhovna Rada to reach agreement on a new Prosecutor General, an UNIAN correspondent reported. 


Such statement the U.S. Ambassador made at the Conference on "Constitutional Reform: Promoting an Independent, Accountable, Transparent and Efficient Judiciary in Ukraine."

"First, it should be an individual who enjoys the support of the Rada and the trust and confidence of Ukrainian civil society.  Ultimately, the success of any prosecutorial and judicial system rests on the respect and confidence it enjoys from the people who are governed," Pyatt said

"Second, a new Prosecutor General should be a dedicated individual committed to a reform of the institution of the Prosecutor General.  In this regard, Ukraine has a successful model to follow in your new Patrol Police," he said.
