After the Waterfall-the leak: the Minister wants to strengthen the Fca

Today's News has, in cooperation with the German Der Spiegel and the Dutch NRC Handelsblad, examined a large leak of documents from the Waterfalls and the subsidiary Nuon. Both documents, as the seven whistle-blowers testify on the irregularities and the repeated violations of the law within the state energy.

Professor of administrative law Olle Lundin, who took the part of the review, reacts strongly:

– You can hardly believe that it is true, he said to DN.

giving a written to the DN comment on the findings of the Waterfall-the leak:

”I assume, of course, completely from the company followed laws and rules regarding this issue. For the state as the owner, it is also of particular importance to companies with state ownership act exemplary.

It is the company's board of directors and management responsible for the company's operational activities and issues such as this.”

Now tell civilminister Ardalan Shekarabi (S) from the ministry of finance's side is looking at how upphandlingstillsynen can be used as a tool to prevent and combat corruption.

– We see both a potential and a need to strengthen the upphandlingstillsynen. Therefore, we are looking right now at the conditions that give upphandlingstillsynen stronger muscles in anti-corruption activities. It is mainly about the regulator, the Fca, the tools, " says Shekarabi to DN.

the authority, which has oversight over public procurement.

– the Fca notes themselves – and it is also an international experience – that in upphandlingssituationer arise many korruptionsrisker. Since there is already a structure for upphandlingstillsyn, with the legal means to monitor the contracts, to enter into upphandlingssituationer and identify the behavior of the contracting authority and potential bidders, can also reinforce work from a korruptionsförebyggande perspective.

the Minister wants to return to the question of exactly how the reinforcement can be carried out.

Richard Jermsten looks positively at the government's initiative.

" I agree with civilministern to the supervision of the procurement rules have an important role to play in efforts to counter corruption. The rules promoting competition, combat corruption, and contributes to an efficient use of tax money, said he to the DN.

Internal document: Waterfall broke regularly against the law – knowingly

whistle-blowers: ”Waterfall silences the internal alarm on suspected breaches of the law.”
