Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat will not be closed – PM’s office

The Prime Minister’s office in a statement said it has paid attention towards the newspaper reports, which stated that the Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat under the Prime Minister’s office is going to be closed and some people are trying to weaken its work.

The Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat was established in 2015 to observe the complaints received from the public on Corruption and fraud and to refer the true complaints to the Bribery Commission or to the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) of Police.

The statement further said that a committee comprising officers from the Bribery Commission, FCID, and the Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat are preparing a special report on regularizing the functions of the institution.

A final conclusion will be reached as to whether the Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat will continue its functions, revise its duties, or it will be given responsibilities parallel to the Bribery Commission and FCID in accordance with the recommendation of the said report, the statement said.
