GRECO: Czechia not focussing enough on preventing corruption

Czechia is not focussing enough on the prevention of corruption or regulating lobbying sufficiently, the Council of Europe's anti-corruption body GRECO said in an assessment report published on Monday. The anti-corruption group wrote that although Czechia has a robust legal framework for the prevention of corruption, there is too little focus on guidance, training and awareness activities, as well as on supervision and enforcement, and progress in some areas, such as lobbying, has been slow in recent years. The Council of Europe gave the country 20 recommendations for improvement.
