Belize’s UNCAC Process to be Reviewed by International Experts

Rolando Zetina

Where are we with the implementation of UNCAC legislation? The previous administration signed the United Nations Convention Against Corruption. Today, the C.E.O. of the Ministry of Public Service, Rolando Zetina, gave an update indicating that conversations are ongoing. He also said that experts will visit the country in the months ahead to review where Belize is in its process. Here’s what he had to say.


Rolando Zetina, C.E.O., Ministry of Public Service

“Our good governance unit is engaged in conversations with UNCAC, the United Nations Anti Corruption Agency, the MESISIC, which is the South American and Caribbean Organization against Corruption and other initiatives. I know we hear the cry, sign UNCAC, but I must say that it is a process. It’s not that you can decide on a date and then sign. It is a process where there are different country reviews.  Right now, for example, in the next few months, we have people coming from, experts coming from Marsh Alliance, from Uruguay to do a review on Belize to see where we are – if we are ready for UNCAC. And our good governance unit is working towards that in establishing systems that will allow us to sign the UNCAC.”
