Lukashenko urges to update anti-corruption draft bill

MINSK, 31 July (BelTA) – President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko gave an instruction to prepare a unified anti-corruption draft bill taking into account all amendments and to submit it for public consideration at the session held on 31 July to discuss improvements of anti-corruption laws, BelTA has learnt.

“By speaking about this issue at this level I wanted to emphasize the necessity to launch a serious process to reform anti-corruption legislation. It is essential to work out a comprehensive bill taking into account all additions and to publish it in the mass media. We need to study all proposals of people, make certain amendments to make this legal document the most comprehensive, objective and adequate bill to date,” the head of state remarked.

“This will be an old bill with additions and amendments. But keep in mind that today we will not discuss this issue for the last time. Therefore, introduce your amendments and submit the bill for public consideration as soon as possible. I will express my criticism in public after I read your amendments. I will decide that you intentionally bypassed certain corrupt practices and did not spell out measures of fight against them. Keep it in mind. This bill shall be submitted to the President and be ready for publication in a week,” the head of state said.

The President also urged to consider measures to inform people about the amendments in the anti-corruption law. Alexander Lukashenko also reminded that ignorance of laws does not release from responsibility. “It is up to each person, each civil servant to decide. I am convinced that even the civil servant who does not know all the trivia of the corresponding legal act understands where the limit which he is not allowed to cross is,” the Belarusian leader believes.

Alexander Lukashenko warned civil servants against illusions that it is possible to conceal a crime. “Believe me, nothing can remain a mystery. Someone will give it away. I have enough channels of information. Be sure that I will not leave this information without attention,” the head of state stressed.
