Council of Europe anti-corruption experts (GRECO) have placed Denmark in its non-compliance procedure due to lack of sufficient measures taken to prevent corruption in respect of members of parliament and in the judiciary, according to a compliance report published today. GRECO concludes that Denmark has implemented satisfactorily only one of six recommendations issued more than four years ago.
Despite the perception of Denmark as one of the least corrupted countries in Europe, it needs concrete action in preventing and combating corruption.
GRECO recommends that Denmark establish a code of conduct, which is actually used, effectively enforced and applied amongst parliamentarians. It should be complemented by practical measures such as training and counseling.
