Moldova’s self-assessment on implementing the UN Convention against Corruption25.11.2013 2147 Views
Preliminary results of self-assessment on implementation of the UN Convention against Corruption by the Republic of Moldova were discussed today at a workshop organized by NAC with the support of UNDP.
The event’s purpose was to validate the level of implementation of the Convention by our country.
Self-assessment process aimed to stimulate national involvement in anti-corruption efforts, to encourage intra-institutional dialogue and cooperation. This process is a recommendation of the UN and it is conducted in two cycles, five years each, on the following chapters:
IV. Asset recovery.
Thus, the information gathered by a working group consisting of representatives from National Anticorruption Centre, National Integrity Commission, Prosecution Office, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Economy, representatives of civil society etc., have been used in a special electronic application which generates a self-assessment report and identifies deficiencies.
Present at the event, Cristina Tarna, deputy director of NAC mentioned about the perfect Moldovan legal framework and deficiencies in implementation. She encouraged all participants to be open and honest in reporting problems in order to be able to identify solutions later, so in 2014 when Moldova will be assessed by Norway and Bosnia and Herzegovina, we receive better appreciations.
Nicola Harrington - Buhay, Permanent Representative of UNDP, highly appreciated the fact that Moldova has made this self-assessment, which is a recommended condition - but not a UN requirement, and decided that the final report will be made public.
We note that assessor countries are determined randomly by drawing lots. Thus, Moldova together with Jamaica evaluated Hungary in 2013, and along with Georgia will evaluate Belarus in 2014.
Evaluation is a review mechanism that allows identifying successes, best practices, and challenges that national authorities are facing during preventing and combating corruption. 145 countries of the world joined United Nations Convention against Corruption, Moldova being a member starting with September 2004, thus assuming the implementing of its provisions.
