Monitoring of sanctions for violations of anti-corruption laws in 2014

The full functioning of independent bodies and their contribution to the fight against corruption in certain areas is hampered by a lack of political will (disregard for the recommendations given by these bodies) and poor administration of justice, which has led to extremely slow sanctions for anti-corruption violations. In some cases, proceedings on applications from independent bodies have been suspended due to the statute of limitations for conducting proceedings. There was no proactive action by prosecutors based on the findings of independent bodies - cases where the prosecution initiated misdemeanor or criminal prosecution for violations observed in the reports of independent bodies.

Transparency Serbia will monitor what violations of anti-corruption laws were noticed by independent bodies, what sanctioning mechanisms were initiated, how misdemeanor courts and prosecutors acted and how the media reported on it, in order to achieve a better accountability system by identifying and eliminating weaknesses.

The project aims to strengthen the rule of law and improve the efficiency of courts and independent bodies, pointing to the need to sanction offenses identified and identified by independent bodies, while encouraging prosecutors to initiate anti-corruption procedures themselves.



The project is made possible by the support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the Judicial Reform and Accountability Project and does not necessarily reflect the views of USAID or the United States Government.
