Kyiv district court grants National Anti-corruption Bureau`s access to e-declaration database

Kyiv`s Solomyansky district court has ruled that agents of the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) can have access to government workers` electronic declarations as part of a criminal investigation into alleged illicit enrichment.

The National Agency for Prevention of Corruption (NAPC), which is the operator of the e-declaration, system, will allow the NABU to have access to the database for a limited period of time, the NABU`s press service said.

NABU agents will be able to obtain attested electronic and hard copies of the needed documents.

The attested copies are allowed to be used as proof in a criminal probe into legal grounds for enrichment.

The NAPC in turn said that its authority includes storage of e-declarations submitted by members of the central and local government. It allows temporary access only in cases authorized by a court, as such documents are protected by the law on personal data.

The NAPC earlier sent the first administrative protocols to court that prove the failure to provide e-declarations or late submission.

”In keeping with the protocols, the authorized NAPC agents have revealed four cases of the late submission of e-declarations for 2015 without a reasonable excuse,” the NAPC said.
