Parliament approved the formation of a special committee to ask whether similar corruption cases as that of the Port of Tallinn, can be avoided in the future.

In late August, the two-man management board of the state-owned Port of Tallinn were arrested on corruption charges amounting to around four million euros.

The creation of the committee was proposed by 52 MPs and voted in favor by 91 of the 93 MPs present on Tuesday. Two MPs – Kalvi Kõva (SDE) and Jüri Ratas (Center Party) – abstained. The committee will seek to find out how the two board members were hired to lead the company.

The committee will also look at why the supervisory board, consisting then of a number of politicians, could not or would not detect and avoid such crimes. The committee will take a look at how to safeguard systems in such companies.
