Recommendations of Transparency Cyprus



Transparency in Cyprus, a politically independent, non-profit and non-governmental organisation, with a view to contributing to the strengthening of civil society and the improvement of the quality of public and private governance in Cyprus . TC promotes transparency, integrity and accountability. In response to the broader effort of the society for effective solutions to the problems of corruption, unethical behaviour TC reemphasises two suggestions following the explosion at the Mari Bases and the killing of 13 people.

We suggest that an Independent Commission Against Corruption be set up and that a legislation similar to the Whistleblowers Protection Act 1989 (USA) or the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (UK) be enacted.

Due to the major economic crisis Cyprus is facing at the moment, it will need to prove to the outside world, include the European Union that it is doing all possible to combat corruption and to encourage whistle-blowers to come forward. Perhaps if such a legislation was in force the Helios Plane Crash in 2005 and the Explosion 11 July 2011 would have been prevented.
