Cyprus makes promising moves to fight corruption

In a new report to assess measures taken by the Cypriot authorities to carry out its recommendations, the Council of Europe’s Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) gives a mixed assessment (see the Greek version of the report).

Although only two of 16 recommendations related to corruption prevention with respect to members of parliament, judges and prosecutors have been fully implemented, eight have been partly implemented and all are in progress, with some more advanced than others.

Although GRECO welcomes the publication of asset declarations of MPs on an official website – including income from outside private activities – transparency should be more comprehensive, notably concerning movable property. Furthermore, a GRECO recommendation to monitor asset declarations by MPs with an independent and effective mechanism has not been fully implemented.
