Financial crimes formerly unpunished will now be prosecuted through the Pilot Project of Actions in Fight Against Corruption officially launched on Tuesday 29 August 2017 in Lomé. The aim is to support the Togolese State in its efforts to eradicate this scourge, which has contributed enormously to the impoverishment of the population by not promoting the development of basic social services.
This project will strengthen the capacity of several actors from civil society organizations, state institutions including the Court of Auditors, criminal justice, the Togolese Revenue Office (OTR) and others, the High Authority for the Fight against Corruption and Related Offenses (HALCIA) as well as media professionals, so that they can master the tools necessary to use for its success. It will be implemented for 36 months by the National Alliance of Consumers and Environment, ANCE-TOGO.
Everything about the launch of this ambitious project is available in the report …
