TIS watchdog favours property disclosures

Corruption watchdog Transparency International Slovakia (TIS), which was in August invited by the government to participate in a programme to fight corruption, has said it favours requiring public officials to disclose their property holdings. TIS chief Emília Sičáková said this condition would be in conformity with the principle of free access to public information, and would help to eliminate non-transparency in political decisions on economic issues.

Sičáková also said TIS was trying to decide whether or not to accept an invitation to monitor the tender process at state gas utility SPP, which has been linked in the Slovak press to groups close to Economy Minister Ľudovít Černák.
