Uganda, Kazakhstan to take pointers from India’s graft fight
Representatives from Uganda and Kazakhstan will visit here in June to review India’s fight against corruption by assessing efforts being taken to check bribery in private sector and by foreign public officials.
The visit is part of mandatory obligation under the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), a universal legal instrument to deal with the menace of corruption.
“The representatives from Uganda and Kazakhstan will be visiting India between June 24-26 as per the requirements under the UNCAC,” a senior official in Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) said. The representatives will assess the anti-corruption laws and other legislative steps being taken by the government here to check graft, he said.
The delegation is also likely to interact with officials of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) and other law enforcement agencies besides visiting their headquarters, the official said.
The review by two other member nations was due after the ratification of UNCAC by India on May 9, 2011
“A large number of documents in the form of questionnaire and supporting documents have been shared with the United Nations and the representatives of the visiting nations,” he said.
