ACC REACTS TO GLOBAL CORRUPTION BAROMETER REPORT 2013

 

Freetown, 12th July 2013

 

The attention of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has been drawn to the recent publication of the Global Corruption Barometer Report for 2013 in which Sierra Leone was rated as one of the countries with the highest incidence of bribery, more particularly with respect to accessing social services (the Police, justice, health, education, licenses, registration and electricity).

 

However, it is important to note that the respondents admitted to the effectiveness of government action in the fight against corruption with a 51% aggregate. Similarly, 85% of the respondents also acknowledged knowing how and where to report corruption. In this vein, the Commission reaffirms its efforts in the drive to get the people sensitized and responsive to reporting corruption.

 

Furthermore, the Commission is reassured by the fact that the report indicates that 99% of the respondents expressed willingness to join the fight against corruption. Over the years, the Commission has emphasized the need for the people of Sierra Leone to come on board in the fight against corruption and to report, resist and reject corruption in all its form.


This report on bribery affords the opportunity to restate the countrys resolve to achieving zero tolerance for corruption which can never be realized without full participation of its citizens.

 

While we continue to muster the necessary efforts to deal with bribery in all facets of public life, we would like to call the attention of the general public to the negative and indelible effect of bribery and indeed any other form of corruption, if it is not dealt with aggressively by all and sundry.
