Fight Against Corruption: Everything Online

Publicly publishing online how and where state funds are being spent are part of a new plan in the fight against corruption in Croatia. According to a new draft, soon on all Ministry and state agency websites in the country there will be a number of registers, from lists of government property, to seized properties and spatial plans of Croatian cities, to beneficiaries of state subsidies, reports daily newspaper Jutarnji list.

The Ministry of Justice has welcomed the plan, saying that government bodies should be taking advantage of technologies such as the internet.

“With the publication of various registers we get transparency because citizens can at any time verify the information they are interested in,” says the Ministry. “The action plan is based on the Anit-Corruption Programme from 2008, which has so far only been revised once. According to announcements from the Ministry of Justice, a new strategy to combat corruption will be adopted in 2014, which will have a completely new methodology.”

Also part of the eight point plan in the programme will be the ability to seize and sell assets of criminals and a register of state assets.
