US Embassy Message / Corruption Undermines Rule of Law, Fight It!
Through a Facebook post, the US Embassy reaffirms its commitment to holding corrupt actors accountable, and urges countries to adhere to their commitment to fighting corruption.
"Corruption undermines the rule of law and erodes public confidence in government institutions," the embassy said in a statement.
Corruption threatens security, economic equality, undermines the rule of law, and undermines public confidence in government institutions. Corruption threatens political rights and civil liberties globally and leads to the erosion of democracy and human rights. The fight against corruption requires more than words, which is why the United States is the largest donor in the world to key anti-corruption mechanisms to ensure that countries meet their obligations. On International Anti-Corruption Day, the United States reaffirms our commitment to holding corrupt actors accountable. We call on all countries to adhere to their commitments to fight corruption.
