    Saeima committees to consider easing requirements on candidates for Corruption Prevention Bureau's chief

    RIGA, Jan 12 (LETA) - Amendments to the rules on evaluation of candidates for the Corruption Prevention Bureau chief, which stipulate lifting the requirement that all candidates must have at least a three-year experience of working in a senior position, were forwarded to Saeima committees today.

    In order to encourage more candidates to apply for the Corruption Prevention Bureau's chief, the legislation proposes that candidates should have relevant work experience and experience of working in a senior post in public administration or law enforcement.

    The State Chancellery indicates that a number of laws and regulations have to be amended in order to improve the mechanism of selecting the Corruption Prevention Bureau's chief.

    Past experience has shown that candidates who have worked in senior positions for a longer period of time do not necessarily are better candidates than those who do not have such experience, the State Chancellery explains.

    The amendments forwarded to committees today also deal with special pensions paid to persons who retire from the Corruption Prevention Bureau.
