A six-member expert mission, composed of representatives of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Estonia and Iraq, visited Montenegro from March 29 to 31, 2022.
The working visit was one in a series of steps to assess Montenegro's implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, the only legally binding universal anti-corruption instrument.
In this, the second cycle of evaluation, the application of Chapter II - Preventive Measures, and V – Asset Recovery was under scrutiny.
At the premises of the Agency for Prevention of Corruption (APC), as the host and institution that organizes and coordinates the entire process on behalf of Montenegro, the experts met with representatives of APC, the Ministry of Justice, Human and Minority Rights, the judiciary and the Financial Intelligence Unit Police Administration.
The next step will be the preparation of the final Report for Montenegro, which will show whether and to what extent our state, with its legislation and practice, fulfills the articles of the Convention in the mentioned chapters.
We remind that Montenegro ratified the Convention in 2005 and is part of the program of analysis of its implementation since the first cycle, in 2010.
