  • [01] GRECO notes Cyprus' efforts to comply with recommendations

    Council of Europe GRECO has noted in a third evaluation round compliance report Cyprus' efforts to comply with the recommendations previously issued on combating corruption. In a report approved by the CoE plenary, on Thursday, GRECO notes that Cyprus "has been able to demonstrate that reforms with the potential of achieving an acceptable level of compliance with the pending recommendations within the next 18 months are underway".

    It concludes that "the current low level of compliance with the recommendations is not "globally unsatisfactory"" in accordance with the articles of its Rules of Procedure. Cyprus was due to implement GRECO recommendations on incriminations and on transparency of party funding. "In so far as incriminations are concerned, legislative reforms aimed at ensuring greater coherence of the existing provisions are to be commended", it is noted.

    Thus, the report adds, "a series of amendments introduced in the Criminal Code, the Prevention of Corruption Law and the two Laws ratifying the Council of Europe Criminal Law Convention and its Additional Protocol have remedied some important deficiencies, namely insufficiently dissuasive pecuniary sanctions for corruption offences, and imprecise definition of some bribery offences".
