HPR: Chawki Tabib calls for tougher penalties under unlawful enrichment law

President of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (INLUCC), Chawki Tabib, on Wednesday, called to toughen the sanctions provided for by Law 2017-89 on the declaration of assets and the fight against illicit enrichment and conflicts of interest in the private sector.

Speaking on Wednesday morning at a hearing organised by the parliamentary general legislation committee, Tabib said fines of around 300 dinars and even two-thirds of wage deductions are insignificant, compared to the gains made by corrupt agents within the administration.

The President of INLUCC proposes replacing financial sanctions with physical sanctions.

He also agreed with a number of MPs to broaden the list of public sector officials and agents involved in the declaration of assets.

In this regard, he called for certain public officers to be included, like the Omda and party leaders and heads of associations receiving public funding to be included.

Tabib said a period of six months for the entry into force of Law 2017-89, from the date of promulgation of the decree-law establishing a model declaration of assets, is “inadmissible and relatively long”.

“This bill is the third anti-corruption bill that has not been submitted to the INLUCC council for consultation, as provided by the law, he pointed out.

He added that the fact of involving the commission in the work of certain parliamentary committees or certain small Cabinet meetings does not represent a consultation.

Nevertheless, Tabib describes as positive step the fact that the government submits the bill to parliament for an urgent review, after being left in abeyance since 2012.
