Certain Employees of the General Prosecutor of Ukraine (GPU) to openly and aggressively deepen the reform process in the country, said on the last working day of the week, speaking at a financial forum in Odessa, US Ambassador in Ukraine Jeffrey Payette.
"There is one obvious problem that threatens the whole anti-corruption for the work of regional leaders in Odessa, in Kharkov, in Ukraine, in the other, to improve the business climate ", – Pieta quotes the press service of the on the Internet office of the Embassy." This obstacle – the failure of the General prosecutors of Ukraine to successfully fight illegal activities of officials. Instead, to support reform in Ukraine and to work to eradicate bribery, corrupt pests in the state office of public Prosecutor worsen the situation, openly and aggressively undermining the reforms ", - has told to the American Ambassador. According to him, these "pests" from time to time create obstacles to investigations and prosecutions of corrupt bureaucrats in the General Prosecutor's office, terrifying the consequence.

As an example, He cited former Minister of ecology Nikolay Zlochevsky, in which the English authorities arrested $ 23 million of illicit assets. To bureaucrats in the GPU turned Britain with the request to submit documents confirming the grounds for arrest. In response, the Prosecutor's office sent letters to attorneys Zlochevsky, who testified that the case against him there. As a result, the UK court lifted the detention of money and then the money was transferred to Cyprus.
"The fault of officials of the GPU, which wrote these letters must be investigated and those responsible for the collapse of the case, putting their signatures to these letters at least must be on time removed from work ", - has told the Ambassador of the USA in Ukraine." We are ready to cooperate with the reformers inside the GPU in the battle with illegal activities of officials ", - has noticed It.
