06. Jan. 2017. in publications

On the verge of opening of two the most difficult and challenging chapters in the negotiations for accession to the European Union, Montenegro still bears the burden of negative ratings in the fight against corruption and organized crime. In the Progress Report of Montenegro, we can see that the strengthening of anti-corruption policies and institutions is necessary for their implementation. The report states that the control function of institutions that control the financing of political parties and conflict of interest must be strengthened and the continuity has to be established as well as visible progress in the investigation, processing and sanctioning of corruption cases, including those at the high level. It was pointed out that the possibility of financial investigation is not fully utilized, that institutions involved in the fight against corruption lack a proactive approach, especially in cases involving senior public officials.
