Appeal to the Delegation of the Romanian Parliament at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe
In the context of today's debates on the role and mission of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), we bring to your attention the appeal done by Transparency International: PACE needs an investigative body to protect the integrity of its mission.
Transparency International urges PACE members to recommend the establishment of a permanent, independent investigative body to examine allegations of corruption and lobbying that undermine its mission.
In fulfilling its mandate to protect human rights and the rule of law in Europe, PACE must give priority to measures that ensure the integrity of its actions.
