Dili, December 17, 2010

Corruption is a malignant phenomenon that subverts fundamental values of life in society.

It undermines the foundations of a democratic state based on the rule of law by falsifying the fair distribution of national wealth and promotes divisions and frictions within society. Simply put, corruption is against justice and social harmony.

Fundamental constitutional principles such as universality of rights, and equality and legality are emptied of their contents in benefit of private interests of a few people devoid of scruples.

A global phenomenon increasingly difficult to track down and fight, corruption demands that our State adopts exceptional measures capable of ensuring increased effectiveness in the struggle against this type of crime.

Based on those facts, the Timor-Leste chapter of the Global Organization of Parliamentarians against Corruption (GOPAC), with support from UNMIT, has organized a half-day seminar to launch the Anti Corruption Draft Law which is currently being debated internally by Committee A of the National Parliament.

Hon. Fernanda Borges, President of Executive Committee of GOPAC Timor-Leste stated that Timor-Leste is taking another critical step in combating corruption. This Anti Corruption Law is important because it will complement our penal quote and enable Anti Corruption Commissioner and Prosecutors to investigate and prosecute corruption cases more effectively. To Succeed we must enact legislation, promote civic values and assist institutions to implement legislation comprehensively, impartially and sustainably.

The seminar will be held at Casa Europa in Dili on December 17, 2010 from 08.30 to 13.00. A number of honorable speakers will address the seminar including Dra. Ana Pessoa, Prosecutor General, Hon. Fernanda Borges, President of Committee A of National Parliament and Dr. Aderito de Jesus Soares, Commissioner of Anti Corruption Commission.

The objective of the seminar is to inform the public about the draft anti-corruption law and also to gather public opinion and views about this important anti-corruption instrument that will serve as one of be legal basis in combating corruption in Timor-Leste.
