The International Anti – Corruption Day is marked to commemorate the stand against Corruption globally on December 9.

For the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption, this day is important to reflect on the work done by the Commission in the country to combat corruption as well as to look ahead and work with the communities to ensure that every Fijian lives a life free of corruption.

FICAC public relations officer Nandni Vandhana said: “Our theme for this year is Fostering Partnerships against Corruption for Sustainable Development in Fiji.

“This year again, like last year, the Commission has organised a roadshow in every town around the country. The roadshow will help facilitate the public’s engagement with the Commission and strengthen relationships for more partnerships in the future. FICAC invites members of the public to come in numbers and support the cause.”

Complaints officers and other FICAC officers will be present at the roadshow to assist anyone who wishes to lodge a complaint, and to answer any queries from members of the public.

“The one big challenge remains for the Commission which is the mindset of the people. There is a need to realize that corruption hinders the development and progress of our country, it is imperative every Fijian takes ownership of this country and the Commission in its bid to combat corruption.”

Since its establishment in 2007, FICAC has led the way in combating corruption in the country. The Commission’s three-pronged approach of investigating and prosecuting corruption as well and educate the public is a clear demonstration of the Commission’s political will and determination to fight corruption at all costs, as well as its effectiveness.

“The high level of integrity and commitment of its officers in carrying out their duties, the good working relationships between FICAC and the public and private sector, its independence and the support of the people of Fiji continues to be markers of the Commission’s success.”

Confirmed sites for the roadshow times will be confirmed later in the week for the towns are listed above.
