Fight against corruption: there’s no tolerance for impunity

The 16th International Anti-Corruption Conference in Putrajaya, Malaysia, has just concluded. On the table, not only the fight against the widespread phenomenon of corruption all over the world, but above all the commitment to make sure that the corrupt do not remain unpunished

From 2 to 4 September 2015 the 16th edition of the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) took place in Putrajaya, Malaysia. The International Anti-Corruption Conference is the world’s most important forum that brings together heads of state and representatives of civil society and the private sector to tackle the increasingly demanding challenges posed by corruption.

Jointly hosted with the Government of Malaysia, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and the Malaysian Society for Transparency and Integrity, the conference saw a massive participation by nearly 1200 people coming from 130 different countries, who gathered in Putrajaya to discuss how impunity enables the spread of corruption and, above all, how to stop it once and for all by bringing to justice those who benefit from a regular abuse of power.

Reiterating the clear message emerged from the 2012 conference held in Brasilia, a final declaration was drafted at the end of the three-days conference in Putrajaya: “As we leave Malaysia after three days of constructive debates, we commit ourselves to working together to stop the rapid spread of corruption. Together we have the power to bring impunity to an end”.
