Cooperation agreement with Ukraine's National Anti-Corruption Bureau

On 22 March 2017, the Basel Institute on Governance and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) have entered into an agreement whereby ICAR will assist NABU in strengthening their capacities to conduct complex investigations into cases of grand corruption, money laundering and related financial crimes. The support involves both assistance in on-going investigations as well as providing ICAR’s signature training.

NABU is an independent law enforcement agency in Ukraine responsible for investigating corruption and preparing cases for prosecution, which are handled by the Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office (SAP). ICAR has also been supporting the SAP since February 2016 in strategic anti-corruption cases under investigation by NABU. The agreement with NABU therefore complements and reinforces the support already provided by ICAR to SAP.
