INTEGRITY AUTHORITY'S ANTI-CORRUPTION TEAM ADOPTS 2022 REPORT

 

The anti-corruption working group of the newly established Integrity Authority has adopted its first report on 2022 and will submit it to the government after March 15, the authority said on Monday. The team, composed of representatives of civil organisations and the government, highlights in its report the importance of “educating the players of the economic sector, members of the whole of society and those involved in public procurement about conflict of interest and graft prevention issues”, the authority said in a statement. The working group in addition proposes launching asset probes in cases of suspected bribery and fraud, it said. Parliament passed the law on establishing the Integrity Authority as an autonomous public institution to investigate fraud, conflict of interest, corruption and other crimes in connection with the use of European Union funds in Hungary on October 4 last year.
