On 30 July 2020 the International Anti-Corruption Coordination Centre (IACCC) launched a new Associate Membership Scheme. This allows law enforcement agencies from smaller financial centres to join the IACCC as Associate Members having signed an MOU. Associate Members are able to rapidly exchange intelligence with the IACCC to assist with the development of the intelligence picture on grand corruption cases. The IACCC will be able to provide further support to partners across the world with grand corruption investigations, including the facilitation of Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) requests between their jurisdictions.
The new IACCC Associate Members are:
These agencies join the existing core IACCC Members, consisting of law enforcement agencies from six countries and Interpol. It is the intention that additional law enforcement agencies will join the IACCC as Associate Members on a regular basis.
Mrs. Sophia Harris, Chairman of the ACC commented, “The Anti-Corruption Commission is proud to join the IACCC Associate Membership Scheme. The network will serve as a valuable resource to our investigators in furtherance of our efforts to fight corruption, which often requires cross border international assistance. An environment of international partner agencies will hopefully aid in our current as well as future investigations and facilitate quicker and timely exchange of intelligence to our investigators. We are delighted that the Commission is now an official Associate Member”. Members of the public are encouraged to report any suspicions of corruption with any supporting evidence to the ACC. Reports can be made in person or anonymously. Civil servants are also reminded of their obligation to report any suspicion of corruption to the ACC as soon as they become aware.
