Following the National Anti-Corruption Committee’s recommendations, which the Federal Government established in November, it was revealed that 640 people had been charged with corruption. The National Anti-Corruption Committee reports that there is an investigation into about 226 thousand square meters of land.
At the review forum held at the Skylight Hotel today, February 30, 2015, the members of the anti-corruption coordination committee, which was established by the federal, state, and local governments, made this declaration. The forum featured remarks from Temeseng Tiruneh, director general of national intelligence and security and chairman of the Coordinating Committee. One article has already been written about 175 of the 759 suggestions.
He announced that 81 case files that were opened as a result of the investigation contained 640 charges against 640 individuals. According to the suggestions, 2.2 billion birr worth of “public and government property” had been harmed by corruption. He added that if later local anti-corruption committees are discovered, the damage might become worse.
A National Anti-Corruption Committee of seven people was established after PM Abiy Ahmed declared corruption to be a “threat to national security” in a statement made about three months ago. Finding and bringing “actors” in corruption to justice are tasks that fall under the purview of the prime minister’s committee.
State and local governments have also declared the establishment of committees with similar organizational structures.
