Citizens act to establish anti-corruption body

EAST NEW BRITAIN has established a transparency advocacy group which will work closely with Transparency International in the fight against corruption.

The group, Transparency Advocacy, will investigate corruption in the province and also seek to promote anti-corruption education and awareness.

Spokesman Patrick Varagat said the role of Transparency Advocacy was to promote good governance, good attitudes and values such as honesty, integrity, accountability and freedom of expression amongst the people for effective democratic participation.

The formation of the ENB Transparency Advocacy followed a public forum held in Kokopo last month.

Mr Varagat criticised top public servants and provincial leaders for not attending the forum.
