Russian Government burkes introduction of dismissed for corruption officials register
Since January 1, the amendments to the Federal Law "On Combating Corruption" include the provision on the creation of a register of officials dismissed for corruption.
The so-called 'list of corrupt officials' has not yet been approved by the Government of the Russian Federation; it should be created after amending the Federal Law "On Combating Corruption". This is reported by the press service of the Transparency International human rights organization.
"On January 23, we appealed to the government of the Russian Federation with a request for approving the order of keeping the register. But no answer has been received so far. Thus, it can be said that the introduction of the register of corrupt officials in Russia is thwarted," the organization says.
Since January 1, the amendments to the Federal Law "On Combating Corruption" include the provision on the creation of a register of officials dismissed for corruption. The list should include former officials who were fired for committing crimes related to corruption. The register has to include details of the dismissed authorized persons. The order of keeping the register is also to be approved by the Government of Russia.
