INLUCC S-G calls for withdrawal of draft law on good governance and fight against corruption

Secretary-General of the National Anti-Corruption Body (INLUCC) Koutheir BouallAgue called for the withdrawal of the draft law on good governance and anti-corruption.

The plenary discussion of this draft as well as on the one concerning common provisions between the constitutional bodies is scheduled.

Speaking at a press conference Tuesday at the headquarters of the National Union of Journalists on the initiative of the civil anti-corruption group, he pointed out that the drafting of the bill by the Executive undermines the principle of distribution of power stipulated by the 2014 Constitution, through the creation of independent constitutional bodies.

BouallAgue criticised the lack of provisions on the organisational structure of the body and mechanisms enabling it to carry out its functions under other laws, such as the one on exposure of corruption and protection of whistleblowers and the draft law on declaration of assets and combating illicit enrichment.

He also noted the absence of provisions clearly establishing the financial independence of the institution, in accordance with Article 125 of the Constitution.

The secretary general of INLUCC also said the authority does not have a regulatory power to exercise its prerogatives independently and to take the decisions it deems necessary to manage its affairs.

Providing the authority with a police attached to the judiciary is likely to restrict its powers and reduce the effectiveness of its anti-corruption actions, he said.

Representatives of NGO Tunisia Solidar presented during the press conference draft amendments to the draft law on common provisions between independent constitutional bodies, which they believed should establish an effective anti-corruption system.
