The Parliament adopted important amendments to the Law on Anti-Corruption Bureau

The Parliament passed amendments to the Law on Anti-Corruption Bureau, which concern the appointment and dismissal of its head, the procedure for confiscation of officials' property and others.

247 deputies voted for the relevant decision.

From now one, the director of the Bureau will be appointed solely by the president from among two or three candidates, nominated by the commission for the selection of candidates.

The head of the Bureau may be dismissed both by the president and the parliament, but based on the results of an international audit.

Such audit shall be conducted by three independent experts from the CMU, the Parliament and the President.

MPs also made amandements, according to which the property of officials may be confiscated, if they can not explain its origin.

Also, those, who have worked in anti-corruption agencies in recent years, will not be allowed to work in the newly created Bureau.
