ADDIS ABABA – Three federal institutions have joined hands to jointly combat corruption and related malpractice in Ethiopia.
The trio, the Federal Attorney General, Federal Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission and Federal Police Commission, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Friday.
“Unlike the previous modalities, the agreement will help the trio to communicate in a more organized and structural way,” said Ayeligne Mulualem, Federal Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commissioner.
The agreement aims at creating ground rules for the exchange of information and mutual support among these institutions, according to Ayeligne.
The deal will lay down a system to collaborate in the prevention, detection, investigation, punishment, and eradication of corruption in the public and private sectors, he added.
This agreement hopes to strengthen the ongoing national campaign against corruption and bring about the successful realization of building governance, the commissioner said.
