During the discussion of the amendments sparked fierce debate. The Saeima supported the previously approved second reading of the proposal of the Deputy of Alexey Loskutova ("Unity"). But the norms edited taking into account the recommendations of the legal Bureau of the Parliament.
The press service of the Seimas explained that changes to the law are developed in accordance with the recommendations of the European organization for cooperation and development (OECD).
The act defines the status of the Bureau. Direct management and oversight will be carried out with the mediation of the Prime Minister. This means that the head of the government will have the right to check the legality of decisions of the chief bpbc and cancel contradictory orders.
The supervision of the Prime Minister does not apply to decisions taken by bpbc in the field of combating corruption.
Besides, one and the same person cannot hold a post of the head bpbc more than two consecutive terms. Now this term in the law is not stipulated.
Currently the chief Boria nominates the Prime Minister, and then approved by the Saeima for a period of 5 years. The chief bpbc tenders.
According to the amendments, officials bpbc employed in the public service, and their employment relationship are governed by acts, determining the principle of equal rights, the prohibition of different attitude and formation of adverse consequences, working hours, payment, financial liability of employees and terms, to the extent not defined by this law, the law on remuneration of officials of state and municipal structures and the law on the device of public administration.
Amendments to the law stipulate that the official bpbc can be sacked without the consent of the trade Union of workers of the Bureau, writes LETA.
The head bpbc no later than 30 June 2016 must warn employees about the status change in the employment relationship. If the employee (including officer) during the month does not agree with the establishment of relations with an employee of the civil service, the chief, by order, terminate an employment relationship. It also does not require the consent of the Union.
Officer of the Bureau may be a person with no higher education, if such education is not required to perform their duties, the applicant has secondary education and the required experience.
Bpbc still remained the only law enforcement institution in the country, officials which were not in the position of employee relations with the state, consisted of labour legal relations, as on the subjects of private law.
Also the new version of the law stipulates that the decision of the Seimas of the chief of the Bureau can be relieved of his post if it is in the performance of official duties, intentionally broke the law or committed negligence resulting in damage caused to the state or person.
Also the head can be dismissed for failure to comply with the law on prevention of conflict of interests in activities of public officials.
Approved by the Commission in the wording of the law States that bpbc is a body under the Cabinet of Ministers, which supervises under the mediation of the Prime Minister.
Approved by the Commission amendments also provide for the establishment of a community Advisory Council to ensure public participation in formation and implementation of anti-corruption policy. The Council creates the head of the Bureau, decisions of the Council are recommendatory in nature.
Another new feature is the term limit of the head bpbc in the post. The amendments suggest that the same person may not chair the Bureau more than two consecutive terms. Now the law does not specify this issue.
Amendments approved by the Commission, provide that the chief of the Bureau without special approval from the Prime Minister may make regulations, except regulations.
