(TAP) - More than 1,300 corruption cases have been transferred to the courts since 2016, while the rate of cases given final judgment ranges from 10 to 15%, Chawki Tabib, president of the National Anti-Corruption Authority (INLUCC), said on Monday.

Speaking at the closing of the 4th National Anti-Corruption Congress, Tabib reported that 900 cases had been transferred to the courts by the anti-corruption authority until last week. Some 459 cases have already been submitted by the Commission of Inquiry into Cases of embezzlement and corruption, he added.

According to him, most of these cases concern public procurement, the misappropriation of public funds and confiscated property in addition to the abuse of power.

Under the theme "Fighting corruption: a participatory process", this congress coincides with the celebration of the National and International Anti-Corruption Day, which coincides with December 9 each year.

The meeting, which was attended by several anti-corruption actors, provided an opportunity to review the national strategy for good governance and anti-corruption 2019-2020 and the various obstacles that have so far hindered its implementation.
