Majority of the population believes that corruption in Tajikistan is at a high level: entrepreneurs and general population perceive education and culture as the first cause of corruption, while public officials indicate it as second cause right after low salaries . Corruption is entangled in various sectors of society, especially in areas such as police, health and education, which are arguably the most important services in the country. In order to reduce the possibilities for corruption, the Office supported the development of a methodology for anti-corruption assessment based on the legal context in Tajikistan in 2014.
Anti-corruption assessment of the law is a corruption-preventive measure that aims at identifying provisions in a legal act that can potentially lead to corruption. The assessment of the Draft Law on Police will address certain issues to ensure effectiveness of anti-corruption mechanisms, including improvement of anti-corruption normative legal acts by securing expert support. The Office will provide the expert with the Draft Law on Police and other necessary documents for the assessment of this draft and preparation of recommendations for its improvement. After the expert finalizes the assessment, this document will be presented to the representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Police and other relevant government institutions dealing with the anti-corruption.
The consultant will carry out a detailed anti-corruption assessment of the draft Law on Police of the Republic of Tajikistan and related regulations, as decided by the Office, in order to identify provisions that entail corruption risks and issue recommendations on how to improve criminal legislation to eliminate corruption risks.
The purpose of this assignment is to assess the draft Law on Police and related regulations to identify potential corruption risks within the Law and propose amendments to mitigate those risks.
