“If the leadership of the NACP requested to conduct an internal investigation and the government has the right to such an internal investigation to assign, let’s do this internal investigation and if there are violations, then these violations will then be transferred to law enforcement authorities for appropriate response and bringing to justice these persons, and that applies to the materials that came in Netpolicy, the national police must consider them. I have a suggestion that on the basis of the national Agency of state service to generate the appropriate Commission. We are ready to join by request to this Commission, to conduct an internal investigation and to provide materials to the public on the government so that society can see the results of this investigation,” – said Petrenko.

“24 people are unable to check and continued collective review,” protested Smith.
He added that in the current Commission format and with its current composition is unlikely to check about 100 thousand declarations to be successful and effective.
“Therefore, it is necessary to solve this problem, amend the law and actually form through a public competition for the new staff, who will perform their duties properly,” he said.
