Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) has extended it service to the Pacific region addressing the ills of bribery and corruption and its social and legal implications.

FICAC this week hosted a fact finding team from Nauru and trained them in addressing corruption and bribery related issues.

FICAC in a statement said the focus of the team was to learn about the proactive measures that FICAC currently employs in ensuring that the gospel of anti corruption is taken to the civil servants, community groups, the private sector, tertiary institutions, primary and secondary schools, the i-Taukei speaking & Hindi speaking communities and other focus groups.

The Nauru NGO group was recently established to create awareness and educate its citizens about corruption and bribery in Nauru.

The group comprises of 16 members, however only two of the Group’s members had come on this fact-finding visit.

The group President Squire Jeremiah and a member Doneke Kepae plan to take back strategies of drawing public awareness and lobbying the Nauru government to address their anti-corruption efforts.

The duo said that the reason for choosing to learn from the Commission was because it is reputable, well established and it is the only anti-corruption institution within the Pacific realm.
