The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) and stakeholders have validated Liberia’s responses to the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) comprehensive self-assessment checklist in preparation for the peer review of Liberia as a state party.

The UNCAC comprehensive self-assessment checklist was validated at a one-day workshop organized by the LACC, which took place on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 in the conference room of the National Elections Commission in Sinkor. The workshop brought together relevant government ministries, the private sector, civil society and the media.

The self-assessment checklist comprises responses provided by Liberia under chapters three and four of UNCAC, focusing on measures taken by Liberia to implement the Convention and on successes and challenges of such implementation.

Chapter three of UNCAC deals with criminalization and law enforcement while chapter four looks at international cooperation.

Discussions for the validation of Chapter Three of UNCAC were facilitated by the In-House Counselor of the LACC, Cllr. Othello Payman while Mr. G. Jasper Cummeh, Senior Policy Director of the Actions for Genuine Democratic Alternatives (AGENDA), a civil society actor, facilitated discussions on Chapter Four.

Liberia is expected to be reviewed later this year by the Republics of Benin and South Africa.

The purpose of the review process which is conducted under the Mechanism for the Review of implementation of the UNCAC is to assist states parties in their implementation of the convention.
