Members of the WG had the opportunity to discuss with the experts the final steps of drafting the Integrity Plan. Specific issues concerning identification of risks and measures to address corruption and integrity related issues at State Police, responsible structures to handle such issues and definition of concrete and measurable indicators were widely covered by the experts during the tele meeting.
