Abuse of Office: Why it is Difficult to Prove

15.03.2011

The report summarizes the results of a study on the mechanisms to prevent and counteract the abuse of office. Emphasis was placed on the possibility of officials to be held criminally liable in the event of a crime. It analyzes the practical implications in establishing and proving those specific crimes, as well as to punish the guilty officials, especially those in the high echelons of power. Recommendations have been made to improve the existing mechanisms for monitoring and sanctioning officials as a key precondition for strengthening the prevention and increasing the efficiency of justice.

The report is published with the support of the Open Society Institute - Sofia and the Trust for Civil Society in Central and Eastern Europe.
