EU leads Afghanistan anti-corruption drive

AT-KABUL: The European Union unveiled on Sunday a major campaign to fight corruption in Afghanistan, seeking to address three critical sectors including elections, economic growth and development.

A statement from EU said the three-week campaign would culminate with a high-level anti-corruption conference in mid-April.

Ambassador Pierre Mayaudon, head of the EU Delegation, acknowledged the government’s steps in the fight against corruption in 2017. He cited the prosecution of some cases by the Anti-Corruption Justice Centre and the launch of the national anti-corruption strategy.

“But more needs to be done to fight this scourge: strategies and plans need to be translated into firm actions. People should see the difference,” he asserted, “Corruption questions Afghanistan´s ability to become self-reliant” says the Head of European Union Delegation to Afghanistan.”
