Rio de Janeiro City Hall publishes decree establishing an anticorruption reporting channel

19/06/2020

On Thursday (06/18/2020), the Executive Branch of the Municipality of Rio de Janeiro published Municipal Decree No. 47,538, which institutes “Anticorrupção Carioca”, an anticorruption reporting channel.

According to the decree, the service aims to allow citizens of Rio de Janeiro to report any acts of misconduct, corruption, fraud, bribery and embezzlement of resources, as well as any type of undue advantage committed by public agents and external collaborators who operate within the scope of the Municipal Executive Branch.

To report such misconducts, whistleblowers may utilise the exclusive reporting form which will be available at the city hall’s main websites. In addition, reports may be made via phone or electronic mail.

The service will be managed by Rio’s Municipal Comptroller General (CGM), entity responsible for the internal control of the municipal bodies and entities of the indirect administration of the Rio de Janeiro’s state capital. CGM will be responsible for receiving, registering, and controlling the reports, adopting measures aimed at the effectiveness of the investigations and the accountability of the reported agents.

As established by the decree, CGM will issue, within ten days, a resolution to ensure the effectiveness of the project and regulate the operations of the intended reporting service.
