NGO Calls for Parliamentary Code of Ethics

The chairman of the board of the Corruption-Free Estonia non-profit Jaanus Tehver has called for a code of ethics for parliamentarians.

Tehver, a lawyer by profession, said on ERR radio on December 2 that he agreed with the position of the Public Prosecutor's Office and IRL secretary general Priit Sibul that the recent scandal of legislators arranging residence permits for foreign businessmen was likely not illegal.
