Anti-corruption boost

Slovakia now has 1,000 specially trained anti-corruption bureaucrats.

They are people from various state administration organs and their job will be uncovering potential focal points of corruption and proposing ways to eliminate them.

"We carried out this project after considering that more efficient audit and control would be a positive part of the fight against corruption," said Jozef Stahl, head of the Supreme Audit Office.

The project was prepared by French consultation firm Sofreco for 1.35 million euro.
