The State Assets Recovery Agency (SARA) is on the verge of launching an anti-corruption campaign under the theme “corruption is everybody’s business.” The agency said that this campaign in being launched in an effort to raise awareness of corruption in Guyana.
SARA, an autonomous agency, was created through the State Assets Recovery Act of 2017, and passed in Parliament on April 13, 2017. The Act mandated SARA to recover, through civil proceedings, state property unlawfully acquired by a public official or any other person.
Given its mandate, SARA has seen it fit to fight corruption in every way it can.
SARA’s latest venture is being undertaken in collaboration with various government agencies.
To launch the campaign, SARA is slated to host a “short ceremony and a symbolic walk against corruption.” The walk is scheduled for this coming Friday from 14:00 hrs to 16:30 hrs, along the Camp Street Avenue.
Among those scheduled to speak at the event are Director of SARA, Professor Clive Thomas; British High Commissioner Greg Quinn; Anti-corruption Advisor, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, David Robinson; The Queen’s Young Leaders and Key members of the Religious Community.
SARA said that after the short ceremony, all invitees will participate in a symbolic walk against corruption.
