This Thursday, during an ordinary session of the National Assembly (NA), the Law for the Reform of the Decree with Rank, Value, and Force of Law against Corruption was unanimously approved during the first discussion.
The president of the Permanent Commission of the Comptrollership of the NA, Deputy Alexis Rodríguez Cabello, indicated that the reform incorporates the figures of Communal Councils and Communes as subjects of the Law and, therefore, responsible for the management of resources.
"Corruption is a social phenomenon that affects the efficiency of the entities and organs of the State, affecting its patrimony, in such a way that the State is prevented from guaranteeing the welfare of its people," he pointed out.
Likewise, he assured that external factors that besiege Venezuela finance acts of corruption in public companies and companies that generate services, creating uneasiness and instability in Venezuelan society.
The parliamentarian pointed out that the Anti-Corruption Law proposes to broaden the concept of public patrimony, including the principle of co-responsibility by which the officials who manage such patrimony must be governed and implement educational policies for the training of public officials.
