The delegation from Rwanda attended the Anti-corruption conference which concluded with important decisions on practical steps to prevent and fight this crime.

The delegation includes the Deputy Ombudsman of Rwanda in charge of preventing and fighting Against Corruption; Mr. MUSANGABATWARE Clement, BIRASA Fiscal, the Director of Special Investigation on Corruption Unit at the Office of The Ombudsman and Madame INGABIRE Marie Immaculee, The Chairperson of Transparency International, Rwanda Chapter.

The delegation attended the eighth session of the Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption which concluded with resolutions on strengthening prevention and the work of anti-corruption bodies, improving data collection and more.

Preparations for the first-ever UN General Assembly (GA) special session against corruption in April 2021 were also agreed in a resolution that will be recommended for adoption by the GA.
"This session of the world’s most representative conference on this universal and comprehensive legal instrument against corruption has reaffirmed and renewed the commitment of the international community to prevent and fight this crime," said Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Yury Fedotov, in his closing remarks.

"Your achievements can help to ensure that work through the Convention against Corruption makes a decisive contribution as we enter this decade to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals."

Fifteen resolutions were adopted during the week-long session, addressing the work of anti-corruption and audit bodies, financial intelligence units and parliaments, as well as issues including public sector integrity and public awareness, challenges of Small Island developing states, prevention, asset recovery, bribery, measuring corruption, environmental crime and corruption in sports.
The Conference also agreed to continue work under the second cycle of the Convention’s implementation review mechanism covering prevention and asset recovery.

The Convention against Corruption, with 186 parties, is the only legally binding universal anti-corruption instrument. Every two years, the States parties to the Convention meet, with the ninth session scheduled to take place in 2021 in Egypt.
The week-long meeting brought together more than 1,300 participants from countries around the World.
