The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has assessed 500 cases so far and has referred 12 cases to prosecution, ACC President Mariyam Shiuna said on Thursday.
Shiuna noted at a ceremony to unveil the ACC’s new website that 961 cases were examined last year, with 15 of them being forwarded to the Prosecutor General’s Office.
She went on to say that the commission has assessed 500 cases in 2021 so far, with 12 of them being sent to prosecution.
According to the ACC president, the commission has been chastised for failing to meet the public’s expectations in terms of case review speed. Despite the criticism, she noted that the purpose of the commission is to expedite the process and resolve the cases.
Shiuna remarked that the commission still has a lot of work to do to achieve its goal of battling corruption and eradicating such cases.
She emphasized the importance of other government agencies working with the ACC to achieve this goal.
