Bulgaria Unleashes Corruption Watchdog
The Bulgarian cabinet voted Tuesday for the creation of a new governmental agency, the Center for Preventing and Combating Corruption and Organized Crime (BORKOR), in a bid to make even greater progress in the field.
The Center will be an organ of the Council of Ministers and will be managed by a consultative council to be composed of representatives of the legislative, executive and judicial powers. The council will be presided by Minister of Interior and deputy-PM Tsvetan Tsvetanov.
The new Center for Preventing and Combating Corruption and Organized Crime will implement the multidimensional BORKOR model, which is the government's strategy for fighting corruption, adopted in November 2009.
The move comes as a bid to act upon recommendations set forth in the regular European Commission progress report on the EU Co-operation and Verification Mechanism announced last week. The Commission report praised the cabinet's commitment in the field of corruption and organized crime, but asked for still more efforts.
