The Council of Europe’s Group Of States Against Corruption (GRECO) in relation to Spain has published a report.
In the report, Recommendation 213 states: GRECO recommends reviewing the disciplinary regime of the Police and the Civil Guard, with a view to strengthening its transparency, objectivity and proportionality, among other things and in particular, by excluding any possibility of a supervisor deciding on discipline matters single-handedly.
EuroCOP Spokesperson Nigel Dennis said: “EuroCOP will continue to press the Spanish Authorities to review and change their current police disciplinary processes that reflect the recommendations of GRECO as described in their report.
The Spanish Government have the opportunity to do the right thing and not hide away from the discussion.
EuroCOP will continue to work with all Spanish Police Trade Unions to achieve that goal in regard to this matter.”
