Academician Vlado Kambovski, head of the working group for the new criminal code, says the new document will see the act concerning abuse of official position during public procurement procedures reintroduced.
In the recent changes to the Code, the part of the text covering that act, Article 353, was deleted. According to Kambovski, the group will meet in mid-October to finish the draft-version. With the new code, abuse in the frames of tender-related procedures will be regulated by a special article.
The new code will have been submitted to the Justice Ministry by the end of the month, Kambovski points out. He expects it to be on the agenda of a Government session as early as November.
