YEREVAN, April 16. / ARKA /. The Ethics Committee of the Armenian parliament set up to oversee how lawmakers respect laws, political opponents and “moral norms of the public,” has launched today an online system for parliament members to declare their incomes.
The system is supposed to provide the public at large with full access to public data on the income and assets of senior officials.
The electronic income declaration system is linked with the Ethics Committee’s website at www.ethics.am, which presents the declarations.
The website has also interactive sections enabling visitors to write online letters and trace the course of their consideration. It also enables visitors to get prompt answers to their questions via email inquiry.
In May 2011, the Armenian parliament adopted the Law «On Public Service» and related Acts, which provided for the creation of the Ethics Committee.
According to the law, officials are required to submit declarations of income and assets, including the income and assets of their family members. -0 –
