Remarks made by PK Noa (Director General of ACC Namibia) on the International Anti-Corruption Day, which was held on the 9th of December 2016 at the ACC Head Office.
- The 9th December is declared an International Anti-Corruption Day. The Day was set following the adoption of the United Nations Convention against Corruption by the United Nations General Assembly in its resolution 58/4 of 31st October 2003. The Convention was then opened for signature in Merida, Mexico from 9 to 11 December 2003 and thereafter until 9 December 2005 at United Nations Headquarters. Namibia stands amongst the states who first demonstrated their commitment to denounce corruption by being among the first States Parties to sign the Convention 3 on the 9th December 2003 in Merida, Mexico. The Convention provides a unique opportunity to mount a global response to corruption.
Corruption Risk Analysis
- The Directorate of Public Education and Corruption Prevention in collaboration with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) embarked on examining systems and procedures related to Custom and Excise Unit in the Ministry of Finance to identify corruption risks and find ways to mitigate them. Two engagements, in July and September 2016 brought together strategic teams from ACC, Ministry of Finance and UNODC to conduct the in-depth risk analysis. Senior Officials together with the appointed Integrity Management Committee in the Ministry of Finance have demonstrated their commitment to implementing the plan developed to mitigate the identified risks.
