MINSK, 16 October (BelTA) – A draft decree on fighting mala fide middlemen has been submitted to Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko, Chairman of the State Control Committee Leonid Anfimov told reporters on 16 October, BelTA has learned.
“The document has already been submitted to the president. I believe that the head of state will want to hold a special meeting to discuss this bill and other issues related to unjustified and mala fide intermediacy,” Leonid Anfimov said.
In his words, the draft decree obliges companies and organizations to get a permission for procurement deals from parent organizations if these deals are financed by public funds. “If you want to buy products from an intermediary, you will have to get a consent for this purchase. For example, a collective farm will have to get the go-ahead from the agency owning it, from those who hold the shares of this collective farm,” Leonid Anfimov informed.
He noted that the draft decree will cover purchases of a certain price category. “I think that a certain threshold will be set and if the amount of a deal is below this threshold, companies will not have to apply for a permit,” Leonid Anfimov said.More about President
