Liberia: LACC Braces for Int'l Anti-Corruption Day Celebration

The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC), in collaboration with the National Integrity Forum (NIF), is expected to celebrate the International Anti-Corruption Day on Monday, December 10, 2012.

According to a release, December 9 has been designated as International Anti-Corruption Day by the United Nations General Assembly when it adopted the United Nations Convention against Corruption on October 31, 2003.

Since December 9 falls on Sunday, the release said the day will be celebrated on Monday.

The celebration of International Anti-Corruption Day is aimed at raising awareness that prevention is the responsibility of all stakeholders through the involvement of a broad range of actors in the campaign.

The global theme for this year's celebration is "Act against corruption today", while the national theme is "War against Corruption in the Education Sector".

The day serves as an opportunity to all organizations and individuals worldwide to create awareness about corruption and to promote anti-corruption activities.

Series of activities including stakeholders' roundtable discussion, street parade, indoor program and a debate between Haywood Mission School and G. W. Gibson High School in commemoration of the day will be held, the release concluded.
