The office said that the establishment of the line is one of the government's numerous steps in its fight against corruption and it is also designed to increase the consciousness of citizens and overcome indifference or silent toleration of corruption.

The line is also part of initiatives to create a European anti-corruption net. The line is partially tolled but a caller from any town or village in Slovakia pays the same fee as for a local call. The line will operate from 8:00 to 15:00 on weekdays.
