The control of property and conflict of interest is a crucial component in the fight against corruption and in the operation of the Commission. That is why it is of vital importance that the SCPC achieves better results in this area.
In the analysis of this SCPC report (in terms of control of property and conflict of interest), as well as in the rest of the literature, it is evident that virtually two thirds of its work in this field relates to delays in submitting the assets list. It can be seen that the SCPC takes too long to process cases related to control of property and conflict of interest. The time it takes for the SCPC to process cases leaves a dent in its public image, and this must be rectified as soon as possible.
It is necessary to bolster the capacity of the SCPC in a time when it is unclear when the interoperability with the databases of the Central Registry, the Central Depository for Securities, the Customs, the Personal Identification Registry Administration etc. will be achieved. This means that, in the meantime, the SCPC employees, in charge of controlling and supervising the assets that were reported, will have to be proactively involved, and more staff will have to be hired.
