------------------------------Internalisation of UNCAC on Track
Within the framework of the Review Mechanism of the Implementation of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) through the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Cameroon has successfully passed the process to internalize the provisions of the said Convention.
During the review process, more than 1500 points related to Chapters III and IV of the Convention were examined and Cameroon declared consistent in more than two-thirds of the points concerned, amongst which are: the criminal liability of legal persons, the possibility to prosecute foreign public officials for corruption and the level of confidence of Cameroonians towards anti-corruption institutions.
According to the Chairman of CONAC, Rev. Dr. Dieudonné MASSI GAMS, the positive evaluation is a reliable indicator of the encouraging evolution in the fight against corruption in Cameroon. It is also an indicator of the increasing recognition of the expertise of Cameroonians on the international scene.
