TI says Slovakia slow in fighting foreign bribery.

By bne IntelliNews May 25, 2011
Slovakia is among the countries with the poorest enforcement of foreign bribery, according to the latest report of anti-corruption watchdog Transparency International (TI). According to the report, although the legal framework provides adequate protection, the enforcement remains poor. The main deficiency is the lack of a single law that protects the whistle-blower and there are no provisions for anonymous reporting. TI recommends Slovakia to provide guidelines and training to tax officials on detecting foreign bribery during audits. Another recommendation for the country is to make more popular and widely known the provisions of whistle-blower protection.
