EU-funded testing of anti-corruption prosecutor candidates started today
November 24, 2015.
Today (Tuesday, 10 November), the candidates for the administrative positions in the specialised anti-corruption prosecution office went through the general skills test. The process is fully funded by the EU Project Support to Justice Sector Reforms in Ukraine.
Around 200 candidates went through computer-based testing of their verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning skills.
The EU Delegation has attentively followed and continues to monitor the process of establishing of an independent Anti-corruption Prosecution Office. On very short notice EU assistance for testing was promptly delivered.
The aim of this assistance is to contribute to the overall transparency of the selection process and to help to ensure a good and credible outcome.
The establishment of independent and operational anti-corruption prosecution office is a key condition for the further disbursement of significant EU assistance as well as for achieving a visa-free regime.
The EU Delegation will continue to stress the need to have a truly independent and professional anti-corruption selection process trusted by civil society organizations and society as such. Still, some EU concerns in this regard have not been properly addressed.
