Several public institutions will join the National Anticorruption Center and the United Nations Development Project Moldova within the framework of the Anticorruption Week that will take place on the occasion of the International Anticorruption Day, marked on December 9. The events will be carried out under the slogan ”United Against Corruption” and will mark the efforts of the institutions to prevent and combat the scourge of corruption in the Republic of Moldova.
During the launch of the Anticorruption Week, Lidia Chireoglo, the acting head of the General Directorate on Preventing Corruption of the NAC, announced that this year, the International Anticorruption Day will be marked in a unique way and will bring together several public institutions that will participate in the common actions together with the NAC. ” We have decided to join our forces because preventing and combatting corruption is not the responsibility of a single entity. It is our common duty to say firmly that we care about the country we live in, and the prosperous country is free from corruption in which all the state authorities act together. That is why we planned this week to collaborate together with the Border Police, the Internal Protection and Anti-Corruption Service of the Ministry of Interior and the Customs Service on December 9. We are going to have an extensive activity with the General Police Inspectorate, with the State Fiscal Service, as well as with Chisinau City Hall. Through these actions we aim to draw the attention of the whole society as curbing corruption requires a joint effort and its success depends on each of us.”
Olga Crivoliubic, the project manager of the UNDP Moldova, stressed the importance of strengthening the whole society in promoting the spirit of intolerance towards corruption, mentioning the UNDP’s openness to provide support in continuation to implement the projects aimed at consolidating state institutions and supporting other actors involved in the fight against corruption.
"On the occasion of the International Anticorruption Day, together with colleagues from the NAC we start the anticorruption week, which will be organized this year with the wide involvement of the Project "Curbing corruption by building sustainable integrity in the Republic of Moldova" implemented by UNDP with financial support of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. To celebrate this day, this year we have launched a campaign that brought together the anticorruption slogans used in our previous campaigns. It is a campaign organized in a minimalist style, with an emphasis on messages that convey the appeal to act with integrity and to reject manifestations of corruption. Thus, during December, the citizens will see messages promoting integrity on several billboards located in different sectors of the city. As in previous years, we are launching an Integrity Calendar in which these slogans are also printed and which will be distributed to several public institutions to urge officials to ensure an honest public administration. At the same time, during November-December, social spots promoting the integrity of the private sector are broadcast on several TV stations and on social networks. The action aims to promote the good practices of small businesses in the field of implementing integrity standards.”
According to the agenda, this week will be full of events. On Tuesday, an important Study on the role of anticorruption expertise of the NAC will be presented, entitled “Anticorruption Expertise 2016-2018: efficiency, costs, impact”, carried out with the support of the UNDP. On Wednesday, during the International Anticorruption Day, the NAC, the IPAS, the CS and the BP will collaborate in a joint action that will take place at border points.
On Thursday, there will be organized a flash mob in the Public Garden, together with the Chisinau City Hall, after follows the presentation of a study regarding the impact of implementing anticorruption sector plan in the fiscal sector, developed with support of the UNDP, which will address a number of issues. Also, the NAC officers will join the police officers from the GPI in the anticorruption awareness campaign.
The week will end on Friday with online debates on the usefulness of the Relawed platform.
Every year, the Republic of Moldova celebrates the International Anticorruption Day through the events aimed at bringing to the attention of the society the progresses as well as challenges of public authorities in curbing and preventing corruption. Due to the pandemic situation, this year the NAC gave up on the traditional Conference and decided together with the UNDP and other institutions to organize several joint events that would underline the importance of unifying the efforts of the whole society against corruption.
