Group of States against Corruption publishes report on Andorra

Stiffer penalties for bribery and trading in influence offences should be introduced in Andorra, according to the Council of Europe’s Group of States against Corruption (GRECO).

In a new report published today, it also advises the country to make “considerable changes” to its legislation, requiring political groupings to publish their accounts on a regular basis, including the names of major donors and in kind support.

Greco recommends that the supervision of political financing needs to be more effective and complemented with a more extended range of proportionate and dissuasive sanctions and urges Andorra’s authorities to sign and ratify the Additional Protocol to the Criminal Law Convention on Corruption.
