Bulgarian president calls for anti-corruption measures





Bulgarian President Rumen Radev on Tuesday called for the adoption of urgent, decisive, comprehensive and effective measures against corruption.

Radev, who is the head of the CCNS, said after a meeting of the country’s Consultative Council on National Security (CCNS).

“Corruption damages the image of Bulgaria, taints the moral, discourages people, repels investors and undermines the future of the country.

“Therefore, the fight against corruption requires urgent, decisive, comprehensive and effective measures.

“CCNS members agreed that the results of the fight against high-level corruption were low due to imperfections in the legislation and in the institutional framework.

“Because of the lack of a separate institution with clear powers and capacity to effectively fight corruption,’’ Radev said.

The president also said that agreement has also been reached that the state institutions responsible for countering corruption should implement a comprehensive approach that, along with prevention, should also focus on the detection, investigation and prosecution of corruption.

“The regulatory framework covering all aspects of the prevention, counteraction and fight against corruption should be improved and to cover corruption not only in the public but also in the private sector,’’ Radev said.

He, however, added that authorities responsible for preventing and counteracting corruption should be independent.

In January, the European Commission in its Cooperation and Verification Mechanism report said “the overall institutional set-up to fight corruption in Bulgaria remains fragmented and therefore largely ineffective.”
