Tegucigalpa, May 10, 2021. The Anti-Corruption Program of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for Central America and the Caribbean (UNODC ROPAN) offered a workshop on Ethics and Institutional Integrity, Prevention and Fight Against Corruption and Money Laundering, aimed at 110 officials of key entities in the prevention and fight against corruption, such as the Superior Court of Accounts, the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), operators of the justice sector, the Secretariat of Transparency, among others.

This training was held on May 6 and 7.

In the inaugural event, José Vila del Castillo, UNODC Regional Representative expressed his gratitude "to the Superior Court of Accounts for coordinating this seminar in which conceptual aspects of corruption, its classification, types, factors when it is encouraged or motivated will be discussed; we will address aspects related to international tools to prevent and combat corruption, including the mechanisms for review and implementation of these instruments, to which Honduras is already undergoing a second round starting in August with UNODC".

"We hope it will be a very fruitful day and that everything we are doing will serve to make Honduras a more transparent State, with less corruption and more open to citizens," said Vila del Castillo.

Helmut Flores, Calamari, UNODC Anti-Corruption Coordinator, was responsible for this day of teaching in which the following topics were addressed:

  • International tools for preventing and combating corruption.
