In accordance with the document, it is established that the employees of the Anti-Corruption Agency now have the right to unimpeded access to penitentiary institutions and study documents to analyze the causes of corruption offenses.

The Anti-Corruption Agency annually submits a national report on the fight against corruption to the Oliy Majlis.

Relatives of those who report corruption offenses will also be protected by the state. Previously, only those who reported such offenses were provided security.

The law will come into force on the day of its official publication.
