About 9 Staff of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) undergo two weeks anti-corruption Master Class training in Monrovia.
Thanks to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the training targets senior managers and practitioners and provides the opportunity to review critical topics in anti-corruption, examine trends, and identify practical solutions to the challenges they face in their work.
Under the Strengthen Transparency, Accountability, Oversight and Participation (STAOP) project of UNDP, beneficiaries are expected to work on translating specific learning/action goals into implementable action plans.
The training coordinated by a UK-based training firm, Dods Parliamentary Communications Ltd focuses on the basic understanding of the rudiments of anti-corruption, taking into account the use of innovative investigative tools and techniques in detecting corruption before prosecution.
It provides for increased knowledge base of current global best practice, how this impacts the Liberian context, as well as identifying specific ways for this knowledge to be put to use by targeted beneficiaries.
Training modules cover topics on International approaches and recent trends, LACC Model, investigation, prosecution, asset recovery, sanctions, etc.
At the end of the course, it is expected that participants’ knowledge will be enhanced and they will be able to relate knowledge acquired to current global best practices and how this impacts the Liberian context.
