Tajik government proposes mandatory asset declarations for civil servants
DUSHANBE -- The Tajik government has proposed a requirement for civil servants to declare their incomes and assets, Asia-Plus reported Tuesday (September 4).
Officials have submitted the relevant amendments to the country's anti-corruption law to the lower house of parliament.
If the change becomes law, civil servants must declare incomes, assets, bank accounts, securities and bank loans exceeding 25,000 TJS ($2,650), as well as the assets of family members, said a legislative source.
Submitting a wrong declaration or refusing to do so would be a fireable offence.
The reform could take effect by October, said the source.
