August 11, 2016 in Iraq Industry & Trade News, Security The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Government of Iraq signed an agreement today in Baghdad to help strengthen the capacity of the Government to detect, investigate and prosecute high-profile and complex corruption cases. The Prime Minister’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Mr. Naoufel Al-Hasan, said: “Ending impunity is at the center of our reform agenda. We have reached out to UNDP to provide technical assistance to strengthen our capacity to investigate and prosecute corruption cases.” UNDP Resident Representative and UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, Ms. Lise Grande, said: “UNDP stands ready to support the reform process in any way we can. Reforms are difficult and sensitive but with Daesh nearly defeated, strengthening governance is a top priority.” Under the terms of the agreement, UNDP will recruit international investigators to help mentor and train Iraqi investigators. The lead investigator will be deployed within the Integrity Commission and Higher Judicial Council. (Source: UNDP)
