One of the most disputed projects issued by the Justice Ministry is about to gain more power and credibility. The National Integrity Agency (ANI) inspectors will be able to verify the wealth of dignitaries, instead of simply verifying their official wealth statements.

This right was included in the first law draft, but the article was rejected by the House of Deputies.

The president of the Senatorial Juridical Commission, Peter Eckstein Kovaci, suggested for the law to be adopted in a shape nearer the Government’s draft.

Still, senators decided that ANI should not handle the verifications in status incompatibility cases.
