Transparency International, an international non-governmental anti-corruption organization, has called for a broadening of the powers of anti-corruption bodies to enable them to check suspicious information in electronic declarations of public officials.

The press service of Transparency International announced this in a statement, citing the organization's Chair Jose Ugaz, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Transparency International called on the National Agency for Prevention of Corruption (NAPC) to work closely with the Ukrainian citizens and journalists during verification of declarations of public officials and the origin of their declared assets if their lifestyles do not match their stated incomes.

The organization also believes that the National Anti-Corruption Bureau must investigate the origins of the declared incomes, using all the tools at its disposal, including court-approved autonomous wiretaps.

Transparency International also called for early establishment of an anti-corruption court, with the active participation and support of international experts.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the National Agency for Prevention of Corruption has called for inclusion of its employees in investigative teams during searches of premises declarants that are of interest to the agency.
