Business Ombudsman Marcin Swiecicki took part in the National Anti-Corruption Policy Council under the President of Ukraine

Few days ago the meeting of the National Anti-Corruption Policy Council under the President of Ukraine was held to discuss the Anti-Corruption Strategy for 2020-2024.
The Business Ombudsman Marcin Święcicki took part in the meeting and positively assessed the new anti-corruption strategy, which should improve the overall system for preventing corruption and reduce opportunities for corruption in the most corrupt areas.
“It is paradoxical that according to the results of the survey on the level of corruption, business representatives feel the greatest threat from the police and the prosecutor’s office that are those bodies that should protect them and maintain law and order. The statistics of entrepreneurs’ complaints to the BOC also confirm that – the law enforcement bloc ranks second in the number of business appeals. During the entire period of its work, the BOC has received more than 1,000 complaints about malpractice of law enforcement officers. This is a significant challenge for law enforcement and anti-corruption bodies”, highlighted the Business Ombudsman.
Marcin Swiecicki also suggested to supplement the anti-corruption institutions architecture with the adoption of the law that would underpin the status of the Business Ombudsman Council, as an institution that has already proven its effectiveness in combating malpractice of state officials.
