GORKI, March 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The federal government will start giving grants to public organizations deterring corruption in 2012, Presidential Administration Head Sergei Ivanov said after the Tuesday meeting of the Anti-Corruption Council.
“That is unprecedented,” he said. The decision is included in the national anti-corruption plan signed by President Dmitry Medvedev to promote the involvement of the civil society in the anti-corruption fight, he said.
“The ability of the media and the civil society to control revenues and expenditures of public officers is broader now. Reports can be made, and personnel services would check them. If revenues fail to meet expenditures, law enforcers will take the matter in their hands and a trial will be held,” Ivanov said.
He noted that anonymous reports would not be considered, but signed reports could be sent both in writing and online.
