5% of corruption cases finalised since 2006
Out of the 6 605 corruption reports registered with the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) since its inception in 2006, only 347 have been finalised in the courts.
A total of 605 cases have been submitted to the prosecutor-general (PG) for a decision. Of this figure, 212 cases are still pending trial, while 24 are pending the PG’s decision.
This leaves much to be desired in the anti-graft fight, according to ACC’s director-general, Paulus Noa.
