INVESTIGATION

Enforcement of anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws is the core mandate of the Commission. The 19th Amendment to the Constitution has empowered the Commission to investigate acts of bribery or corruption on its own initiative.

The Commission considers the effective and speedy investigation of complaints and allegations as one of its core responsibilities. This Commission will pursue with great vigour. Bribery and corruption has grown in sophistication and the Commission will develop new techniques and methods of investigation to match this sophistication. Close coordination with national and international agencies is crucial to enhance the quality of investigations and to strengthen the global alliance against bribery and corruption. Currently, enforcement under the Bribery Act is limited to the public sector. The Commission will explore how the legal framework can be strengthened so that private sector can also be investigated and prosecuted.


Prosecutions relating to bribery and corruption are conducted through the existing criminal justice process. The Commission is conscious of the complexities of contemporary crimes of bribery and corruption and will pay special emphasis in developing innovative methods in discharging its duties, including having effective mechanisms to protect whistle blowers and witnesses. The Commission will take steps to enhance its capacity with regard to surveillance to enable it to proactively monitor anticipated cases of bribery and corruption. The current legal and institutional framework will be reviewed to establish an effective legal foundation.
