Poroshenko Intends To Sign Law Regulating Activity Of New Supreme Court On November 11

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko intends to sign a law (bill No.6232) amending the Economic Procedural Code, the Civil Procedural Code and the Procedural Code of Administrative Court Proceedings and regulating the work of the new Supreme Court as the only cassation instance on November 11.

The President announced this at a forum of representatives of local communities from the Solidarity Bloc of Petro Poroshenko, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"We have launched the judiciary reform. I hope all codes will be signed in the near future, mayby even tomorrow," he said.

According to him, this will enable formation of the Supreme Court.

President Poroshenko is due to appoint 114 judges of the Supreme Court in mid November.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the National Anticorruption Bureau of Ukraine (NACB) has called on President Poroshenko to veto bill No.6232 that designates new Supreme Court as the only cassation instance.

According to the NACB, the bill contains a number of conflicting provisions, which, in case of adopting, could paralyze work of pre-trial investigative bodies.

In particular, a new provision limiting a pre-trial investigation of grave crime to a six months period, with a possibility of prolongation of the investigation for another half a year, subject to court's ruling, drew the most concerns.

President Poroshenko predicts the start of working of the new Supreme Court before 2018.
