Monaco: insufficient anti-corruption progress says expert report

In a new report on the prevention of corruption of parliamentarians, judges and prosecutors in Monaco the Council of Europe’s anti-corruption body GRECO regrets the low level of implementation of its recommendations (two out of sixteen).

As far as parliamentarians are concerned, GRECO notes that none of the recommendations have been implemented.

Nevertheless, it notes with satisfaction that the authorities of Monaco have expressed their intention to prepare a Code of Conduct for parliamentarians, to strengthen the National Council’s rules of procedure to extend the range of sanctions for misconduct by parliamentarians and to train them.

Concerning judges and prosecutors, GRECO encourages the Monaco authorities to draw practical conclusions from the current census of the incompatibilities and parallel activities within the courts and prosecution services. More transparency is needed for the appointment and management of the careers of judges and prosecutors (whether seconded or not), including at the level of the Supreme Court.The report notes progress including new legislation organising the Supreme Court and the adoption of a Charter of Conduct for its members.

The country’s authorities are invited to submit a report on the state of implementation of the recommendations that have not been followed up as soon as possible and by 31 December 2020 at the latest.
