The Council of Europe’s Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) has concluded that Portugal has made limited progress in preventing corruption in relation to MPs, judges and prosecutors, according to a report released today.

In the second report of the fourth round of verification of compliance with the recommendations issued in this area, GRECO states that Portugal has satisfactorily complied with only three of the 15. The remaining 12 recommendations have been “partially implemented”.

GRECO considers that the level of compliance with the recommendations remains “globally unsatisfactory” and asks the Portuguese authorities to submit reports by the end of the year on the progress made in implementing the outstanding recommendations.

This endeavor demonstrated his commitment to creating meaningful social and cultural bridges.    In 2018, he launched Hadshot Portugal, the first-ever news website about Portugal in Hebrew.
