PRESS RELEASE 2 May 2013
DJIBOUTI – (Somalilandsun) – The Inspector General of Djibouti today launched “Anti-Corruption Djibouti”, a new initiative aimed at raising awareness of the country’s anticorruption efforts and facilitating closer collaboration with international partners.
Anti-Corruption Djibouti was launched with a new website in French and English – www.anticorruptiondjibouti.com which provides further details of the country’s efforts to strengthen governance and transparency regarding the management of public funds, its work with international organisations and highlights of successes to date.
Inspector General Hassan Sultan said: “This initiative is a reflection of the political will dedicated to fighting corruption across Djibouti’s public sector and the reforms already being enacted. From procurement processes to election reform to international cooperation, corruption can negatively impact a wide range of important state functions and it is our responsibility to root it wherever it is found.”
The website will serve as a portal for news and developments in the Inspector General’s fight against corruption in Djibouti. Interested stakeholders can also follow the Inspector General on Twitter at: www.twitter.com/InspectGenDj .
In its fight against corruption at all levels, Djibouti has developed partnerships with regional and international institutions including the UN Development Programme, the World Bank International Corruption Hunters Alliance (ICHA), the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), the European Commission’s AIDCO, the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) and the Forum of African Inspector Generals (FIGE).
