NEWS BRIEFS

Officials must declare property

PUBLIC officials in Slovakia have till the end of March to declare what property they own in line with a new law on conflict of interest.

2005 is the first year the law has been in force.

MP Igor Federič, who leads the parliamentary conflicts of interest committee, has already sent letters to all 400 public officials to whom the law applies, notifying them of their duty, the SITA news agency reported.

The property declarations of public officials such as the president, cabinet ministers and deputy ministers, MPs, the head of the secret service, the head of the Slovak army and the members of the board of the central bank, will be published on the Internet.

Mayors of towns, chairmen of regional governments, and members of regional parliaments must declare their property to special commissions set up according to the law.
