Fight against Corruption

"Corruption can be described as a relationship between two entities, whether individuals or institutions, of which one offers, and usually also provides, a certain reward for the provision or promise of an unfair advantage. The other then expects to receive the promised reward, whether pecuniary or non-pecuniary, for the advantage so provided."

Reporting of unlawful conduct

CTU fulfils the Government Order on reporting of unlawful conduct.

According to Government Order No.145/2015 Coll., on measures related to reporting of possible unlawful conduct in a public service authority (so called "whistleblowing"), CTU adopted appropriate organisational measures.

In accordance with Section 2 of the above mentioned Order, the Chairman of the Council of CTU has appointed a civil servant to receive and inspect announcements on suspicion of an unlawful condut (hereinafter "inspector"). The duties of the inspector will be performed by Šárka Němečková, director of Legislative and Legal Affairs Department. Her deputy will be Marek Beran, head of Legislative Affairs Unit. 

At the same time a letterbox for written announcements has been installed at the CTU premises at Sokolovská 219, Praha 9, approx. 3 meters from the entrance to the building in Bratří Dohalských street. The place ensures minimum possibility of disclosing the identity of the announcing person. This letterpox is dedicated solely to the announcements on unlawful conduct and is marked „Oznámení o protiprávním jednání".
