Klassa - Bulgaria | 05/06/2009

The fight against corruption lacks a legal framework

According to the Global Corruption Barometer of the civil rights organisation Transparency International, the judicary in Bulgaria is the institution worst hit by corruption. The daily Klassa reflects on how this phenomenon can be fought: "Corruption must be understood in a broad context. Apart from bribery, it includes for example the appointment of judges for political or private motives. ... We have no legal framework for fighting corruption, and one must now be created. Anti-corruption organs must be established, in which the judiciary itself must play a part. The way the organs of judicial power are now formed makes it possible to exert substantial political pressure on the judiciary, and this no doubt plays a key role in fostering corruption."
