All positions on Hungary’s new Anti-corruption Team, a 21-strong consultative body attached to the Integration Authority, have now been filled, and the body will hold its first session on Dec. 13, the authority said on Thursday.
Ten members of the body have been delegated by state agencies, while another ten, reserved for NGO’s and private individuals, have been chosen through a public selection process, the authority said in a statement. The representatives of 6 NGOs, including Átlátszó, Transparency International and K-Monitor, as well as four individuals, have secured seats on the team led by Ferenc Bíró, the head of the authority as a whole.
The recently established Integrity Authority is tasked with probing any cases of fraud, conflict of interest or graft in connection with Hungary’s European Union funding.
