On 10 January the Public Council of International Experts held its third meeting. As the result, 12 more candidates may drop out of the competition to the High Anti-Corruption Court.
The international experts have discussed dossiers of judges Yuri Burbela, Vasyl Honcharuk, Ihor Kos, Andrii Malieyev, Olha Salandiak, Valeriia Chorna, lawyers Markiian Halabala, Diana Zanini, Vasyl Postulha and Ihor Sicheslavskyi, professors Serhii Bodnar and Valerii Stanislavskyi.
