  • [01] Cabinet approves draft bill against private-sector corruption

    A draft bill designed to combat corruption in the private sector was unanimously approved by the inner cabinet on Tuesday, in a session chaired by Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis.

    Commenting on the draft bill prepared by his ministry, Justice Minister Anastasios Papaligouras stressed that combatting corruption in all its forms remained the government's "top priority".

    He also underlined innovative elements in the proposed reforms, which he said would fully harmonise Greek laws with those in other European Union countries once passed.

    "For the first time, a penalty is introduced for bribery in the private sector and for the illegal exercise of influence," he stressed.

    Papaligouras is due to present the draft law in detail at a press conference scheduled to take place later on Tuesday.
