National Agency on Corruption Prevention unlawfully closed access to e-declarations of military prosecutors
The Agency for Prevention of Corruption closed public access to more than 100 declarations of military prosecutors.
As NAPC explained, this was done according to the decree of chief military prosecutor Matios on special measures of protection of a list of military prosecutors. The decree is claimed to be adopted in accordance with the law on protection of staff of law-enforcement bodies and judiciary.
However, the law on prevention of corruption does not envisage any grounds for closing access to declarations. When any issue on e-declarations is considered, this law should be considered of supreme legal value over other pieces of legislation. Closing access to some e-declarations may not be justified by the law on protection of staff of law-enforcement bodies and judiciary.
