The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis continues to actively pursue anti-corruption legislation and other related measures that will promote good governance at all levels across the public sector.
Attorney General and Minister of Justice and Legal Affairs, the Honourable Garth Wilkin, reiterated the government’s commitment to anti-corruption during a national address to mark today’s, December 09, 2022, observance of International Anti-Corruption Day. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Uniting the World Against Corruption.”
The Attorney General noted that the mandate government received on August 05, 2022, when it was elected with overwhelming support from the electorate, was a clear signal for good governance and greater openness.
“It is because of this clear mandate from the people, your government has moved swiftly to implement the main three pillars of our Federation’s Anti-Corruption programme,” he stated. “Very shortly, the Integrity Commission will finally get the teeth needed to address corruption by high-level public officers in our Federation by way of amendments and regulations to the Integrity in Public Life Act.”
