The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) in collaboration with the National Integrity Forum (NIF) and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) will on Tuesday, December 9, 2014 join the rest of the world in commemorating International Anti-Corruption Day (IACD).
December 9 was designated by the General Assembly of the United Nations to serve as an opportunity for all organizations and individuals worldwide to create awareness about corruption and to promote anti-corruption activities. This year, the UNODC and UNDP have developed a joint global campaign, focusing on how corruption affects education, health, justice, democracy, prosperity and development. The theme for this year is “Break the corruption chain”.
In commemoration of International Anti-Corruption Day 2014, the LACC in collaboration with the NIF and CSOs with funding from the UNDP, have planned series of activities befitting the day. In consideration of the Ebola virus, this year’s commemoration will feature radio and television discussions about corruption, publication of anti-corruption messages and the parading of a float.
The day will also highlight the launching of the Commission’s three years Strategic Plan by the President of Liberia as well as messages from the Liberian President, Secretary General of the United Nations and the Executive Chairperson of the LACC.
