Today #ECOFIN postponed all four #Hungary related agenda items without decision as #Hungary made it clear that continues rejecting the EUR 18bn aid package to #Ukraine
#ECOFIN asked @EU_Commission to prepare an alternative legal/financial modality not requiring #unanimity
🧵 1/10
2/10
Looking for alternative, #intergovernmental borrowing modalities would have been the sober and diligent approach - as many, including the author of this post suggested - couple of month ago.
3/10
Asking it now is an emergency measure demonstrating how little understanding Member States have about the challenge posed by #Hungary's #autocratizing regime to the #EU.

The @EU_Commission presented its latest assessment about the #Hungarian Potemkin #AntiCorruption package on November 30. #Germany, #France & #Italy asking the #Commission a couple of days later to do the same again is a slap in the face of the Commission, @Europarl_EN
THREAD 1/7

the German @Bundestag, which asked the #Bundesregierung to take a hard stance in this matter, and the #RuleOfLaw in general.

Escalating the issue to the #EUCO is also a wrong move.
The decision under the #ConditionalityRegulation about the suspension of EUR 7.5bn #CohesionFunds & the approval of the #Hungarian recovery plan should be solved in #ECOFIN with #QMV.

#Here is #How #Modi #reduced #Corruption in #NewIndia
SUMMARY: Introduce a Law that Dissuades reporting of Corruption.

It’s a long #Thread. so please stay with me.

In July 2018, the Govt passed the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, 2013.

#AntiCorruption #Corruption #NewIndia work of #Genius

How does this Amendment change things?

(A) Post Amendment, the #Bribe #Giver would also be considered a #criminal or penalizing the bribe giver and bribe taker on equal terms.
#AntiCorruption #Corruption #NewIndia work of #Genius

(B) The Amended Act will facilitate confiscation of the offender’s property

Looking at A & B, who in their right mind will COMPLAIN about being forced to give a bribe?

🧵The Kremlin pushes the idea that #Ukraine is corrupt. This is wrong. Let me share here the high level findings of the 5th Round of Monitoring Under the OECD Istanbul #AntiCorruption Action Plan. Link to full report ▶️
oecd-ilibrary.org/governance/ant…
▶️#Ukraine's National Agency for Corruption Prevention (NACP) developed a draft #AntiCorruption
strategy in 2020.
▶️Ukraine’s conflict of interest legal framework is comprehensive and the NACP is assigned to oversee its implementation; enforcement by courts is low (needs work)
▶️Asset and interest disclosure system is well-advanced in #Ukraine. The fully electronic system
includes declarations in easily searchable, open data format.
▶️Ukraine has strengthened its already comprehensive framework for protection of whistleblowers.

Abir Ballan was suspended from Twitter for revealing the influence of a $40m donation on the conclusion of a study on the effectiveness of Ivermectin.

Can you see the game yet? This is the pharmaceutical industrial complex at play.

#LakhimpurKheri incident was totally unfortunate! This shouldn’t have happened! I’m sure CM @myogiadityanath ji will instruct @UPGovt to initiate proper action against the culprits! Hon PM @narendramodi ji & @PMOIndia will never spare them for sure!

1/ On January 1st, the US finally outlawed #AnonymousCompanies—following a more than decade-long campaign by the @FACTCoalition and our members. I personally devoted 12 years to this effort, but there are so many people to thank for advancing this landmark #anticorruption reform.
2/ It'll be hard to name everyone, and I'm sure I'll forget folks (so forgive me). That said, it's not hard to know where to begin...
3/ My mentor, Gary Kalman, who served as the head of @FACTCoalition from 2016-2019 and now leads @transparencyUSA, had the vision and initiative to recruit @bankpolicy to support reform in 2016. That upended the political dynamics on this issue which eventually led to enactment.

I suspect the bonafide reason Trump veto’ed the NDAA was not Section 230 reform or renaming US military bases named after Confederates: it’s the anti-corruption provisions that would create a beneficial ownership registry that would impact money laundering heathercoxrichardson.substack.com/p/december-27-… ImageImageImageImage
Why? Opposing names is red meat for his base, but I doubt he cares.
He may obsess about Section 230 because Twitter or Facebook secretly blocked him.
But money laundering & following the money affect Trump where he cares most: his complicated finances & foreign entanglements.
If you’ve followed for a while, you know I’ve been talking about the need for a beneficial ownership registry for years, revealing money laundered in shell companies & offshore accounts. The USA has to clean up our own house to lead global reforms & #anticorruption. #FinCENFiles

1] As i poke holes into this silly stunt by Bertha, i maintain that attacking her person, remains vile & uncalled for.

Noone benefits anything from giving her all sorts of derogatory labels which attack her gender, tribe etc.

That being said...yawn!!

2] To begin with, saying Sen DM will be blamed if the army attacks protestors unsurprisingly attracts ridicule.

It comes out as desperation to have him as part of this conversation, when he actually isn't

It equally entrenchs polarization.
This defeatism & victimhood is silly
3] Saying "ZanuPG must go where" is embarrassingly patronizing.

more so, coming from someone in the Opposition.

The #ZanuPFMustGo campaign didnt hijack the "universal" #AntiCorruption campaign.

Those targeting "corruption & looting" are the ones hijacking anti-Zanu activities.

Amid a new House probe into whether Trump is w/holding aid to #Ukraine for its defense v. #Russia in exchange for fake “dirt” on Biden, check out @ViolaGienger’s deep dive.

“President Trump and his personal attorney appear to have increased pressure on the Ukrainian government and its justice system in service of President Trump’s reelection campaign." -- @RepEliotEngel @RepAdamSchiff @RepCummings in letters to WH & State.
.@violagienger notes "It was the widely known & publicly espoused position of the USG, across a half dozen agencies, that the prosecutor’s ouster was among crucial anti-corruption measures the Ukrainian government needed to take to move forward economically and politically."

Here's @ManhattanDA at @ColumbiaCAPI public policy conference: "We won't reach the point where we all look proudly at the state of NY law in terms of #anticorruption unless we address some serious and systemic challenges" in justice system.
DA Vance: "Reliance on federal authorities to safeguard the integrity of state & local govt is inherently risky public policy . . . in tension with federal system of sovereign states." #anticorruption
Also: "NYS is the lone state to employ an utterly nonsensical automatic transactional immunity requirement that every witness before a NY #grandjury automatically receives full immunity for anything they testify about and anything related."

Thread: Both the @NYTimesOpinion and now @NYDailyNews have now editorialized in favor of ending outside pay for #NYS legislators. At bottom, this is an #anticorruption tool.
nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-edi…
Several #NYS #corruption cases over the last few years have involved outside payments alleged to have been corrupt. E.g. Convicted former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. /2
If legislators are allowed NO outside pay, there there can be no ambiguity about payments that might or might not be corrupt. /3
