Jeremy McBride and the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union – intervention taken into account as requirement for anti-corruption activists in Ukraine to declare assets held unconstitutional

10 Jun 2019

The Constitutional Court of Ukraine has declared unconstitutional the clauses of the law on preventing corruption which had obliged representatives of public anti-corruption organisations to submit their asset declarations. This ruling took into account of an amicus curiae intervention prepared by Jeremy McBride with the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union, in which it had been submitted that such an obligation did not meet the requirement under European and international standards for legal precision and did not comply with either the prohibition on discrimination or the rights to respect for private life and freedom of association under those standards.
