ACC Points Eagle’s Eyes on Covid-19 Response Funds

The Anti-Corruption Commission on Friday 17th April 2020 released a Press Statement in which it informed the public that it has established and launched the Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) Response Transparency Task Force charged with the primary role to ensure and instill integrity, accountability, and transparency in the utilization and management of funds relating to the COVID-19 response activities.

The ACC appealed to those who engaged in the receipt and utilization of COVID-19 funds to be mindful of the provisions of the Budget and Accountability Act of 2006 and the Anti-Corruption Act of 2008 as Amended in 2019, dealing with Mismanagement and Misappropriation of Public and Donor Funds and Properties. 

ACC also highlighted that all National and International Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are encouraged to make public any money, donation or pledge received for and on behalf of the People of Sierra Leone regarding the control and containment of the coronavirus pandemic and that any complaint of suspected acts of corruption and or corrupt practices in the Corona Virus Response programs will be investigated as a matter of priority and urgency under the Anti-Corruption Act 2008 as Amended in 2019.  

The ACC further urged to make any complaint or report to the ACC at its 3 Gloucester Street or any of their regional offices across the country and the Commission reassuring the public of its undeterred commitment to controlling corruption at all levels.
