a call for citizens to report cases of corruption

The purpose of this call is to contribute to the fight against corruption by pointing out or processing specific cases in which citizens are witnesses or harmed parties due to someone’s corrupt behaviour. This primarily relates to various forms of abuse of position but also exerting undue influence to gain personal or particular benefits at the expense of public interest.

Reports must relate to cases containing elements of corrupt behaviour in which an organization/body or citizens have been harmed. If you are unsure whether your report contains elements indicating corruption, CCE’s legal team is at your disposal for clarification.

All received reports will be carefully assessed by the CCE’s legal team. If there is a basis for further action and processing, these will be forwarded to the Agency for Prevention of Corruption (APC) or the competent Prosecutor’s Office. Otherwise, the submitter will receive legal advice on possible further steps.

To enhance public awareness of the most illustrative examples of corruption or those posing a particular risk to public interest, a certain number of cases and ways of handling them will be communicated to the public.

Ways to submit a report:

  • online you can submit a report by completing the corruption reporting form and sending it to the email
  • by phone – by calling 020/228-479, every working day from 10:00 to 14:00, our team will record your report or connect you with the legal team to whom you can provide necessary information about the case
  • by mail – you can also send a report by mail to the address of the CCE (Svetlane Kane Radević 1/1, 81000 Podgorica).

The call is announced as part of the PACT Against Corruption project (Partnership Against Corruptive Tendencies) project, supported by the Embassy of the United States of America in Montenegro, the Bureau of the State Department Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL).
