NAC and the Council of Europe - new cooperation bridges in the field of investigation of bank fraud and tenders in the medical system25.09.2019 85 Views
The NAC and the Council of Europe will intensify cooperation in the field of investigating several types of corruption offenses, especially those targeting drug procurement tenders, which involve international pharmaceutical companies, but also in the financial-banking field. The head of the NAC, Ruslan Flocea, discussed this during a working meeting with Igor Nebyvaev, the head of the Department of Economic Crimes and Cooperation of the Council of Europe and the manager of the project "Control of corruption through the enforcement of the fight and prevention law" (CLEP), Julia RE .
The director of the NAC has opted to intensify the collaboration between the Moldovan authorities and the Council of Europe in investigating and supervising the way of conducting tenders for the purchase of medicines from international pharmaceutical companies. According to Flocea, the lack of transparency of public procurement processes, the establishment of high prices, the limitation of the access of several bidders and the ambiguous legislative provisions are among the main causes that generate the auctioning of tenders and the damage of the state. "The operative exchange of information on the quality and honesty of the participants in the auctions, especially of those who operate abroad, would be very useful to the authorities in order to prevent the appearance of bad-faith actors on the market," said the head of the NAC.
In his turn, Nebyvaev expressed his willingness to support the NAC officers on this type of fraud, but also on the segment of other corruption offenses. The official gave assurances that the institution he represents will support the authorities, including in the field of investigations aimed at devaluation of the financial-banking system, and will assist, within the limits of his competences, on the recovery part of the misappropriated money.
We remind that, the NAC has several files on the auctioned tricks in medicine, but also criminal cases aimed at violating the lending rules by the decision makers of some commercial banks - which led to the biggest devaluation of the banking financial system in Republic of Moldova.
