Tansparency calls for ways to tackle Solomon Islands corruption

9:38 am on 7 January 2013

Transparency International in Solomon Islands has called for suggestions from the public on ways and means to tackle corruption.

The anti-corruption group told the Solomon Star newspaper that it is calling for suggestions because the country can tackle the problem of corruption only through people's concerted efforts.

It says it and other anti-corruption institutions cannot tackle corruption alone.

The anti-corruption institutions are the Leadership Code Commission, the Ombudsman's Office and the Auditor General's Office which are all financed under state budgets.

Transparency International believes a free-corruption Solomon Islands can be ascertained if all Solomon Islanders back the campaign that it has started.

It says it needs the whole society to get rid of the corruption disease.
