Speaking in a TV show titled ‘Arguments’ on the public broadcaster, RTCG, vice president of the Social Democratic Party, Mr Raško Konjević, commented on the amendments to the Law on Civil Servants and State Employees allowing employment in state bodies for people against whom there are pending criminal proceedings for a criminal offence prosecuted ex officio.
According to Mr Konjević, it’s inappropriate for those people to work in state bodies.
“I’m also surprised to see that a government, which has committed to the fight against corruption, now deletes from Article 34 the requirement stipulating that a person may not enter employment in a state body if there are pending criminal proceedings for a criminal offence prosecuted ex officio,” he was adamant.
He further explains that a parliamentary majority obviously believes that it’s completely normal to recruit in state bodies people against whom criminal proceedings for criminal offences – money laundering, murder, robbery – are being conducted.
“I’m very surprised,” told Mr Konjević.
He still hopes that his colleagues will notice the mistake, having in mind that, as much as he knows, there’s no such solution in the region.
