Artem Sytnik, the President of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU), made such statement in an interview with Gazeta.ua.
“Currently, in accordance with the Criminal Procedure Code, only security agencies and the police have a wiretap clearance. We have permission to access information off of the communication lines, but only through the Security Service. Beforehand, we must obtain a court order. We listen to the conversations online using a specially designed line. This is extremely important. In prospect, we need authority for independent collection of information. Because at first, the Security Service wanted to record information for us on a disk and then pass it on, while we would have to decrypt it ”, he said.
Sytnik informed that the relevant bill would be forwarded for the Parliament’s consideration at the nearest possible moment.
“ Whether it is adopted, though, depends entirely on political will of Members of Parliament ”, he underscored.
