Anti-Corruption Commission opens office in Mandalay

The Anti-Corruption Commission of Myanmar opened an office in Mandalay on Sunday, and two people were already waiting in line to file complaints.

The Mandalay branch is the second opened by the commission, following the opening of its Yangon office on March 16. The office was opened on land owned by the Ministry of Industry after discussions in the regional assembly.

The Mandalay office will conduct public awareness campaigns as well as investigations, commission member U Aung Than Myint said.

The Mandalay Region government welcomed the opening of the office, Regional Assembly MP U Myit Aung Moe said at the official launch of the facility.

“The commission has successfully carried out anti-corruption operations over the past year, showing the strong desire of the government and the people to fight corruption,” commission chair U Aung Kyi said at the opening ceremony.

Following the enactment of the Anti-Corruption Law in 2013, the commission was formed in March 2014.

Myanmar is the 137th member of United Nations Convention against Corruption. Last year, 46 people were charged and found guilty of corruption. Before the opening of the Mandalay office, the commission had received 1766 letters of complaint from Mandalay.
