“All-out efforts in order to eradicate Corruption “

MULTAN: Director Anti-Corruption Establishment Multan Region Mr. Amjad Shuaib Khan Tareen has said “Corruption is an insidious plague that has a wide range of corrosive effects on societies. It undermines development and the rule of law, leads to violations of human rights, erodes quality of life, distorts markets and ultimately affects the economy. Although corruption has wide-ranging damaging effects on society and governance but its most deadly impact is always on the poor. Corruption in any society is inversely proportional to good governance. Addressing a ceremony on Tuesday organized in connection with “World Anti-Corruption day” here at Raza Hall under auspices of anti-corruption establishment, Mr. Amjad Shuaib Tareen said that self-accountability was first step to check corruption.

He said that responsibility of fighting corruption is not for government and Anti-Corruption Establishment alone but for all of us. Let us not waste our time finger pointing while we shield perpetrators of corruption. He said ACE came up with a new approach by adopting a three-pronged strategy of Awareness, Prevention and Enforcement against corruption and corrupt practices. The vision of Director General ACE Punjab to curb the curse of corruption has proved a great success and today it is producing great results by working hard to fulfill its mandate in its territorial jurisdictions. Awareness, Prevention and enforcement efforts of ACE have created a potent deterrence against corruption and have contributed to the overall positive effect. The CPI 2017 issued by Transparency International Berlin has placed Pakistan at 116   out of 175 countries.

This has been the best position achieved by Pakistan since Transparency International started issuing its CPI rating in 1995.Along with Enforcement measures, ACE greatly emphasizes on its Awareness and Prevention tiers. I would request all of you to join us today for renewal of our vows and commitment to eradicate corruption from our beloved country so that we leave for our future generations a better and prosperous Pakistan.
