EC criticises Montenegro’s anti-corruption strategy

The European Commission has criticised the government’s new strategy to fight corruption and organised crime, the Podgorica-based daily Vijesti reported on Saturday. The EC reportedly concludes the document lacks main goals, deadlines and monitoring mechanisms. Brussels warns that there is no clear definition of corruption. The EC experts reportedly also conclude that the fight against graft in the judiciary is insufficient and called for more efforts to curb organised crime in the economic sector, as well as money laundering. Vijesti says the experts reviewed the government’s 2010-2012 anti-corruption strategy in June. The final version — and the action plan to implement it — are to be adopted by the end of this month.
