Dmitry Medvedev sent amendments to his anti-corruption bill whose first reading was approved in the summer. He offered to fine investigators, officials and judges who are guilty of miscarriage of justice. The amendments also provide for firing venal officials simply because of "the loss of trust."
The bill not only demands income and family income declarations from the officials down the whole power vertical, but also promises a strict check into the authenticity of the declarations, the Rossiiskaya Gazeta writes. Banks and tax bodies will have to share their secrets with heads of federal agencies and regional leaders, who will want to make sure that the persons seeking government jobs or high-ranking positions in state corporations, have no illegal incomes or illegally acquired property. Law-enforcement personnel are allowed to take measures to ascertain the authenticity of information in income declarations.
