EU Launches Anti-Graft Drive in Afghanistan

april2April 02, 2018: KABUL - The EU Delegation on Sunday announced launching its 2018 anti-corruption campaign in Afghanistan.

The drive seeks to highlight the impact of corruption in three critical sectors -- development, economic growth and elections.
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 noted.
“Corruption questions Afghanistan´s ability to become self-reliant" says the Head of European Union Delegation to Afghanistan.” (Pajhwok)
