Shocking report on 'corrupt' Central Anti-Corruption Bureau

From: WBJ
The results of a recent audit of the Central Anticorruption Bureau (CBA) were revealed by its new head, Pawel Wojtniuk. The report paints a grim picture of the agency.

"There was corruption, favoritism, the use of public property for personal gain," said Civic Platform MP Konstanty Miodowicz, chairman of the Sejm's Special Services Committee, which heard the report.

He was reluctant to say more, as the entire 198-page long audit is confidential.

So what now?

Allegedly Mr Wojtniuk has not yet offered a new outlook on how the agency should function. "He does not want to be a liquidator, he needs time. So far, the CBA has operated in violation of the rules on civil control over special services. It is also our fault, and we need to change that," commented Mr Miodowicz.

The directors of the various CBA departments are due to present proposed changes on Friday.
