Head of Trans-Urals offers to make all officials undergo lie-detector test
The obligation to pass a lie detector for officials can be introduced in the next six months.
Acting Head of the Kurgan region Vadim Shumkov offered his own ways to fight corruption in the region. According to him, all officials occupying the so-called corruption-intensive positions must be checked on lie detector.
The region head demanded these measures to be included in the new anti-corruption program in the region, URA.RU correspondent reports.
The obligation to pass a lie detector for officials can be introduced in the next six months, the portal notes.
“The data from this survey will definitely be applied in our work. These colleagues need to be trained so that they understand that everything is as transparent as possible,” Shumkov said at a government meeting on Monday, December 24.
The acting governor also considers it necessary to develop a system of maximum publicity and transparency of cash flows in public procurement. This relates in particular to the areas of road construction, renovation and modernization of utility networks, purchases of medical supplies and equipment, as well as construction of social facilities.
According to Shumkov, the public procurement process should be more closely followed by public organizations.
“Individual, most difficult and expensive purchases must be monitored together with law enforcement bodies,” the region head stressed.
