The Council of Europe anti-corruption body (GRECO) has published two reports on Liechtenstein: a report on incriminations and transparency of party funding and a report on the prevention of corruption in respect of members of parliaments, judges and prosecutors. In its evaluation report on the prevention of corruption in respect of members of parliaments, judges and prosecutors, GRECO makes a series of recommendations and invites the authorities of Liechtenstein to report on progress made by the end of March 2022.
Regarding members of parliament, GRECO recommends – among others – that measures are taken to increase the transparency of the legislative process insofar as the preliminary examination of draft legislation by parliamentary commissions is concerned, that a code of conduct is adopted, and that the disclosure of conflicts of interest is required. As regards judges, Liechtenstein should increase the role of the judiciary in the selection process of judges, adopt a judicial code of conduct and foresee training on integrity matters, and study the issue of the full professionalisation of all judges and the limitation of the number of part-time judges.
