Belize Looks At Convention Against Corruption

Belize has joined several other O.A.S. member states, including Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Trinidad and Tobago in consenting to receive onsite visits as part of the follow-up on the implementation of the Inter-American Convention against Corruption.  While it may not be the United Nations Convention against Corruption which the political third party VIP has been calling for, it is part of the fifth round of mechanism which will look at issues such as public procurement, hiring of public servants, whistleblower protection and the criminalization of acts of corruption under the convention.  The five countries mentioned earlier join other Caribbean, Central American and South American nations that previously agreed to participate in the initiative.
