law has a number of strong points.
One of the very important ones is that the unified register of people who
have committed corruption offenses, becomes open to the public.

has to be made available fully on the Internet. And the low threshold of expenses officials incur and have to declare was reduced
to Hr 150,000, or almost two-fold.
