National integrity committee came at the right time, ACC chief
Amman, Dec 12 (Petra) -- Anti-Corruption Commission ACC President Samih Bino said today that the formation of the Royal Committee for Enhancing the National Integrity System came at the right time underlining His Majesty King Abdullah's keenness to forge ahead with a sound reform process that meets national hopes and aspirations for enhancing the values of transparency and justice.
He told Petra that the newly-named national integrity panel was in line with royal letters of designation to successive governments urging them to lay down a national integrity system for transparency, accountability, justice, equal opportunity and fighting wasta and nepotism and all other forms of corruption. But the circumstances on the domestic scene had prevented or delayed such a move, Bino added.
The ACC chief said the royal directives to the committee that delineated its course of action in its task to curb corruption in the public and private sectors would enhance national awareness on fighting the phenomenon and boost good governance.
He said the panel's output would help remove impediments to coordination among various monitoring agencies, facilitate connectivity among them and avoid duplicity of tasks, stressing that the anti-corruption effort is not the sole responsibility of one party or sector but is a collective national endeavour and a culture that starts in the family.
Bino voiced his optimism that the committee would come up with a charter or recommendations that will be "a qualitative leap that provides a suitable and healthy environment for the functions of all monitoring agencies and underlines a serious political will for reform as it seeks to protect the country and citizens from manipulation.
