The Federal Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (FEACC) said it will take measures against all parties involved in corruption scandals irrespective of their status.
The commission that was established about a decade and half ago with the aim to combat corruption has been accused by various bodies of failing to take appropriate measures against influential personalities and of shying away from grand corruption cases while focusing on petty allegations.
Commissioner Ali Suleiman promised that his office will take measures against individuals and top government officials given credible evidence to corroborate allegations.
At a discussion forum organized by the anti-corruption comission for its staff and different social groups to mark the day, participants reproached the commission for its reservation when grand corruption cases and powerful individuals are at the center of disputes.
“We get several reports from the public, but when we dig deep into the accusations, many allegations turn out baseless or don’t have sufficient evidence,” the commissioner had explained why all informant tips were not acted on. “If the commission gets strong evidence, there is no reason why it would not take measures against the culprits,” he added.
A participant from the Addis Ababa Mayor Office said signs of corruption are growing in the city, mainly among security officers. He further commented that FEACC has to tackle the problem sooner. The commissioner stressed tips made to the commission should be supported with strong evidence.
“We will have more power to combat corruption if the cases are substantiated by evidence,” he added.
The commission has been given more power as of April 3, 2015 when the proclamation it is governed by was amended by parliament. The amended bill has given the commission power to follow alleged corruption cases in the private sector. Previously, the commission was only responsible for tackling corruption cases in government offices.
Ali told Capital that the commission had received tips from private organizations who hoped the charges would be taken up by the commission in line with the amended law, “however most of the reported mischief happened before the endorsement of the law.”
Sources said the reports that are made to the commission by the private sector mainly focus on the financial sectors.
The commissioner confirmed to Capital that cases related to financial misdemeanors, especially in foreign exchange service and loan stipulation are some of the major areas that are observed in the private financial sectors.
