Government adopts anti-graft programme
Budapest (MTI) – The government has adopted a National Anti-Corruption Programme and a related action plan for the next two years, the official Hungarian Gazette said on Wednesday.
Under the relevant government decree, positions in state administration which involve a high risk of corruption should be mapped, internal regulations reviewed and preventive controls introduced.
Risks of corruption in the judiciary system should also be assessed, while anti-graft aspects should be given increased focus in the new public procurement law, the decree said. It added that public access must be provided to a broad range of information about public procurement procedures.
The decree seeks to ensure increased transparency of public companies, as well as the transparency of the ownership structure of all ventures. The operations of civil organisations and enforcement of relevant regulations should similarly be scrutinised.
