International - The Role of Financial Intelligence Units in Fighting Corruption and Recovering Stolen Assets (Thursday, October 04, 2012)
Effective anti-money laundering systems have the potential to pose a significant barrier to the possibility of perpetrators of corruption-related offences enjoying the proceeds of corruption, or indeed laundering the bribe itself. Financial Intelligence Units are an important element in this regard particularly in the early, pre-investigative or intelligence gathering stage, where they act as an interface between the private sector and law enforcement agencies, assisting with the flow of relevant financial information.

International - Principles for Anti-Corruption Agencies: a Game Changer (Wednesday, August 01, 2012)
Over the past 60 years, almost 150 specialised anti-corruption agencies (ACAs) have been established all around the world. Nearly every country nowadays has an ACA. Some, such as the Hong Kong Independent Commission against Corruption, have been hailed as successes, whereas others have been dismissed as failures in the fight against corruption. This article reviews their achievements and failures. It argues that their ‘operational independence’ is the quintessential requirement for effectiveness and success. It proposes a set of twelve principles to ensure their independence from government and a mechanism to monitor compliance, analagous to the international experience with national human rights institutions (NHRIs).
