The Group of States Against Corruption (GRECO) has assessed Hungary’s performance in its most recent anti-corruption report as “globally unsatisfactory.” The GRECO report examines the prevention of corruption in matters involving parliamentarians, prosecutors, and judges in 49 European countries and the United States.
The report notes that only five of its 18 proposed recommendations have been fully implemented by the Hungarian government, with four having been partially implemented.
This proportion is in line with the results of last year’s report, which were also published in detail at the time. This year, however, its complete publication has yet to be approved by Hungarian authorities.
GRECO is an anti-corruption body set up by the Council of Europe that makes regular recommendations on how to reduce corruption risk in its member countries and monitors the implementation of these recommendations. [Telex]
