Parliamentary Committee Hears Out Nominees for Counter-corruption Commission Chairperson

Parliamentary Committee Hears Out Nominees for Counter-corruption Commission Chairperson

03.12.2019
December 3 (BTA) The office of the chairperson of the CUAAFC has been vacant since July, when a real estate scandal forced the then chair, Plamen Georgiev, to resign. After he left the CUAAFC, he became a rank-and-file prosecutor, but shortly after that the government appointed him Bulgarian Consul in Valencia and he left for Spain. At Tuesday's hearing, the two candidates for the job, outgoing Prosecutor General Sotir Tsatsarov and MP Simeon Naidenov of the Volya parliamentary group, presented their concepts about the CUAAFC's work, after which Members of the parliamentary Anti-corruption Committee and NGOs asked them questions concerning their concepts. Tsatsarov officially confirmed earlier reports that the National Revenue Agency did not detect any wrongdoing during a probe into the financial interests and the incomes of Georgiev, the former CUAAFC chair. The probe was ordered by Tsatsarov in his capacity as Prosecutor General amid the real estate scandal. Both Tsatsarov and Naidenov disapproved of the idea about counter-corruption education in early childhood. In his concept, Naidenov lays particular emphasis on the CUAAFC's accountability and the need for a campaign to raise public awareness of the problem of corruption. He finds it necessary to increase the CUAAFC directorates and to recruit new employees. The main highlights in Tsatsarov's concept are administration and human resources management. He sees a need to downsize the CUAAFC staff and restructure the departments. Tsatsarov calls for setting up an advisory board of experts and scientists and a public board with the CUAAFC. He also proposes media monitoring to ensure timely response to any evidence of wrongdoing. Conflict-of-interest declarations should be changed, he said, and universal guidelines should be adopted for filling them out. Tsatsarov believes that too many categories of senior public officials are required to submit conflict-of-interest declarations. While it may not be advisable to exempt all municipal councillors from the requirement, it may be a good idea to limit them to the municipal councillors in the national capital Sofia, the regional capitals and other towns above a certain population size, he suggested.
