Parents don’t take bribe! A new campaign about criminal liability for corrupting the public officials launched by NAC13.11.2014 1772 Views
A new anti-corruption awareness campaign was initiated by the NAC. The target audience is parents of children attending kindergarten and school. The trainings are organized as a result of the entry into force of the law on professional integrity testing which has provisions about denouncing acts of corruption, improper influences and declaring gifts.
According to the law, the public officials are obliged to denounce at CNA attempts of being corrupted or to inform their superiors about undue influences and to declare gifts received on duty.
Thus, NAC will hold meetings in schools and lyceums from the capital, which will be attended by both managers of these institutions and parents of children / students. During trainings the anticorruption officers will inform participants about the provisions of the new law, the ways of denouncing corruption and criminal liability for giving and taking bribes.
Parents will be informed about the fact that they become legal liable when they offer public officials gifts or money and public officials risk to be sanctioned with reprimand or even dismissal in case of accepting gifts.
The trainings held in Chisinau are part of a pilot project which will last till the end of December and will be extended all over the country. The campaign aims to inform a large number of citizens about the Law no. 325 and the consequences of its violation of both sides of the corruption act.
The Criminal Code provides penalties of imprisonment and fines for both passive corruption (the person who takes bribes) and for active corruption (the person who gives the bribe).
