Steps Taken to Fight Corruption in Armenia a Mixed Bag, Says CoE Body

The Group of States against Corruption (GRECO), a body of the Council of Europe, says that while Armenia has successfully implemented all of GRECO’s recommendations related to criminalisation of corruption offences, and on transparency of political funding, none of GRECO recommendations related to preventing corruption among members of parliament were implemented by the end of 2016.

GRECO’s recently published annual report, reviewing the actions taken by its 49 member states against corruption in 2016, also states that 43% of GRECO recommendations related to preventing corruption among judges in Armenia were not implemented by the end of 2016, and 43% only partially implemented.
