Council of Europe welcomes Italian anti-corruption law

Strasbourg, November 9 - The Council of Europe issued a statement on Friday welcoming Italy's new anti-corruption law that passed October 31, saying that "fighting corruption is a key priority of the Council". Secretary-General Thorbjorn Jagland said in a statement that the step by Italy "is important to uphold Council of Europe values". Italy must send a report to the Council by November 30 demonstrating actions taken to support anti-corruption in the country. The long-awaited Italian law provides for an anti-corruption authority to be set up in the public administration to oversee the provisions and to monitor for such things as nepotism and cronyism within public offices.
