Download text in PDF (67 KB)

On the eve of Bulgaria’s EU accession significant results in prosecution and punishment of high level political corruption are still outstanding. In this context, the idea for creating an independent specialized anti-corruption service again became a topic in the anti-corruption agenda.

In January 2003 the President of the Republic Georgi Parvanov proposed the idea of establishing a separate independent service for countering corruption. Such a service, according to the President, should be an independent civil institution.

The policy brief makes an overview of the genesis of the idea and initial vision, the recent developments, the best practices in other countries, the debate and the pros and cons, offering policy recommendations.
