Germany sees Ukrainian anti-corruption court as step toward reforms

BERLIN (Reuters) - The German government on Thursday welcomed a move by the Ukrainian parliament to create a special court to try corruption cases and said the court should be allowed to start its work quickly.

“This is an important step on the reform path of the country and a signal of the determination to fight corruption,” a spokeswoman for the German Foreign Ministry said in a statement, referring to passage of a law creating the new court.

“Now it’s important that the court can take up its work quickly and effectively,” she said, adding that Germany would continue to support the reform process.
