MPs can hire relatives in own offices

After the National Integrity Agency notified the Prosecutor’s Office that several MPs are in conflict of interest after hiring their relatives, the joint statute commission decided that the actions do not represent conflict of interest because the MPs “benefit from a certain degree of autonomy.” In other words, the MPs decided that there is no legal interdiction when it comes to employing relatives and this cannot be considered illegal. At the same time, the MPs invoked “a rightful, constitutional mandate” and explained that they benefit “from a certain degree of autonomy in exercising the mandate.” The decision adopted by the commission dates back from October and has already been published in the Official Gazette.
