Dear CEPS Members,
Corruption is a global concern, and it is so here in Seychelles. During the 2015 presidential election, a lot was said about corruption in Seychelles. In March this year, the National Assembly voted in favor of the proposed creation of the Anti corruption Commission as part of the government’s decision to step up the fight against corruption. CEPS Gender, Rights and Governance Commission believes that there is a need for its members and representative from civil society to be knowledgeable on corruption, and the public has the right to corrupt free services. Routing it out can contribute towards social and economic development.
The Gender, rights & Governance commission is pleased to invite two members of your association to attend an open dialogue on corruption.
The objectives of the dialogue will include;
- Raising awareness on corruption, which will include its definition and the various types.
- Discussing the ethical issues involved in corruption
- The setting up of the anti corruption commission
Date: 3rd August 2016
Time: 3pm – 5pm
Venue: CEPS Conference Room
Facilitator: Attorney General: Mr Ronny Govinden
