Falter - Austria | 16/02/2012

Austria not interested in fighting corruption

The left-liberal weekly Der Falter has published several confidential protocols from the Ministry of Justice concerning the case of former finance minister Karl-Heinz Grasser, who is implicated in numerous corruption scandals. The weekly calls for a more professional approach to dealing with economic crime: "In Switzerland the economic crimes prosecution office in Bern also employs financial experts who work closely with the police. But Austria is still bumbling about, and our prosecutors have to teach themselves to read financial statements. ... What must change? Austria needs a federal office for economic crimes, a highly professional team of experts who understand economic dealings, benefit from a first-class international network and cooperate with politically independent economic prosecutors. Why has so much time passed without such a body being established? Because Austria's political and economic elite has no real interest in putting itself or its practices at risk."
