G20 Anti-Corruption Task Force – putting words into action

Huguette Labelle, Chair of TI, and Robert Palmer of Global Witness have written to the G20 Anti-Corruption Task Force, in the lead-up to their recent meeting in Paris, urging that they take concrete steps to act on the G20 Leaders’ commitments to fight corruption made at the Seoul Summit last October.

Australian Federal Police supports Anti-Corruption Day

The Australian Federal Police website is supporting the UNODC anti-corruption campaign. The website states: The UNODC and UNDP ‘campaign aims to support a positive and pro-active stance against corruption and is proudly supported by the Australian Federal Police. Fighting corruption is a global concern as corruption is found in both rich and poor countries with evidence proving that it hurts poor people disproportionately. It contributes to instability, poverty and is a dominant factor driving fragile countries towards state failure.’
