“Denounce! Your attitude matters!”11.12.2020 1161 Views
A new anti-corruption campaign, entitled “Denounce! Your Attitude Matters!”, was launched today by the National Anticorruption Center and the General Police Inspectorate. Within the framework of this event, the institutions aim at informing citizens as well as police employees about the importance of whistle-blowing acts of corruption, corruption manifestations and undue influence. By using some materials, the GPI and the NAC will deliver information to the citizens about the existing procedures and mechanisms to prevent and denounce cases of corruption.
Present at the event, the head of the GPI, Sergiu Paiu mentioned that the Police has declared zero tolerance to the phenomenon of corruption: “I urge the whole society to say “No to corruption!” and to whistle-blow every case of bribing. Only through the common effort and zero tolerance towards every corruption act we will succeed to combat this scourge in our society.”
The head of the Anticorruption Education Directorate of the NAC, Ion Pruteanu, declared that it is important for everybody to know his/her rights and responsibilities when confronting corruption acts. “Within the campaign, together with our colleagues from the GPI, we will hold lectures for the employees of the police inspectorates in the country about the procedure of declaring gifts, denouncing undue influence, ways of whistleblowing to ensure honest public service, dedicated to the citizen and the society in general. We would like to massively attract honest citizens in the fight against corruption, that will take a stand and will denounce to the NAC and GPI hotlines every time they find out about corruption acts”, said Pruteanu.
The action is conducted within the program “Police Reform Budget Support” and is financially supported by the European Union.
