Municipal Governments work on anti-corruption strategy

The Attorney General’s Ministry, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, is hosting a two-day workshop which seeks to strengthen the state-run systems for the application of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption, UNCAC, in Belize.  The workshop is focused on strengthening the capability of the municipal leaders in order to prevent corruption.  Aldo Garcia, the Interim Resident Representative for the United Nations Development Programme in Belize, said that at the end of the workshop participants are expected to come up with an anti-corruption strategy.

Aldo Garcia – Interim Resident Rep. UNDP Belize: “The main aim of this workshop is to work for two days with the Mayors, an alternative from the municipal bodies in order to find the best way to curb corruption and have the best practices in terms of transparency, prevention and to have a better achievement for the people of Belize. In this case, we are talking about strengthening capacities, giving tools, giving instruments for the municipal leaders to prevent corruption and to have better, more effective mechanisms to have better results benefit the people.”

Johnelle Mckenzie: “What are some best practices that you are encouraging them to adopt?”

Aldo Garcia – Interim Resident Rep. UNDP Belize: “Well, the first one is about law, to see if the law that is in place in Belize is enough, is complete, is adequate to prevent corruption. The second point is about mechanisms for the public procurement, mechanisms for contracting, for payment, mechanisms to prevent conflict of interests, of course, mechanisms to prevent bribery and other illegal practices.”

Mayors and Councillors are attending the two-day workshop which is being held at the Radisson Fort George and Marina in Belize City./////
