INLUCC calls for activation of Higher Council for Fight Against Corruption

The National Anti-Corruption Authority (INLUCC) called on the signatories of the Carthage Document to work for the activation of the Higher Council for the Fight Against Corruption and the Recovery of State Assets.

This council met only twice, on October 30, 2012 and May 17, 2013, since its creation by an order of August 21, 2012, a statement, published Monday by the INLUCC reads.

UNLUCC recalls the importance of the skills available to this Council, which can be summed up in the coordination and monitoring of the work of the various national commissions and structures responsible for confiscating, recovering and managing illicit assets and ill-gotten property.

On the other hand, INLUCC calls for a review of appointments, and promotions in the public service, including those suspected of corruption, urging parliamentarians to consider, as soon as possible, the draft law on the declaration of corruption, heritage and the fight against illicit enrichment.

It calls for stronger control over public service recruitment, particularly at the local level, and to strengthen mechanisms for evaluating, advancing and awarding promotions to public officials, so as to ensure transparency and neutrality.

Besides, INLUCC invites the Prime Ministry to publish the implementing texts of Organic Law No. 10 of 7 March 2017 on whistleblowing and protection of whistleblowers and Law No. 22 of March 24, 2016 on the right of access to information.

INLUCC also calls for a legal framework for the criminalisation of corruption in the private sector.
