D. Law on Ethical Rules Concerning Public Officials

Law No. 5176 Concerning the Establishment of the Public Officials Ethical Board and Amending Certain Laws (“Ethical Rules Law”) became effective on 8 June 2004 and sets forth the ethical rules that the public officials are required to comply with such as the transparency, impartiality, honesty, accountability and pursuing the public interest.

The Ethical Rules Law established the Ethical Board to investigate any irregularities or other unethical conducts of the public officials. The Ethical Board is composed of eleven members who are appointed by the Council of Ministers among the high former public officials such as former ministers, mayors, retired Supreme Court judges and retired university rectors and deans. The Ethical Board holds regular meetings four times a week. A complaint alleging a breach of the ethical rules by the general directors or higher public officials may be submitted to the Ethical Board. A complaint alleging a breach of the ethical rules by an ordinary public official can only be made before the disciplinary board of the public entity that employs the official.

The Ethical Board is granted the authority necessary to perform their duties in an efficient manner. For example, the Ethical Rules Law provides that all ministries and other public entities are required to give any document or information requested by the Ethical Board. If the Ethical Board concludes after investigation that a public official has acted unethically, its decision shall be published in the Official Journal. These investigatory proceedings are envisaged to continue along with the criminal proceedings, if any, concerning the relevant conduct.
