The Commission Against Corruption (CCAC) said in a statement on Thursday that it would soon propose amendments to the civil service disciplinary code.
According to the statement, the city’s graft busters are also analysing possible changes to Macau’s anti-corruption regulations.
The statement said that details of the proposed changes would be announced soon, adding that the proposals would take the anti-graft experience of Hong Kong and the mainland into consideration.
According to the statement, the proposed revision would also take into account proposals by UN specialists, within the framework of the local application of the UN Convention against Corruption.
The government’s policy guidelines for this year include a public consultation on possible changes to the civil service disciplinary code.
The CCAC statement came a day after Secretary for Administration and Justice Sonia Chan Soi Fan told lawmakers that while she was open to the idea of setting up a council on civil service disciplinary matters, she was against tougher penalties for corrupt civil servants.
Some lawmakers and civic leader are of the view that the penalties for crooked civil servants are not tough enough.
The CCAC combines the fight against graft with the functions of an ombudsman.
