Annual report of Anti-Corruption Commission for 2016 presented

President of the National Anti-Corruption Commission (INLUCC) Chawki Tabib said, Thursday, most public institutions and companies with significant financial resources are “riddled with corruption.”

Chawki Tabib was speaking at a press conference organised by INLUCC to present its annual report for 2016.

Companies such as SONEDE, STEG, Tunisair, the social funds and the National Radio and the Tunisian Television are “riddled with corruption”, he insisted.

He cited the financial situation of social funds whose deficit amounted to nearly 1,700 million dinars, which he said resulted from the spread of corruption and the absence of good governance mechanisms.

Those suspected of corruption continue to commit the same crimes after the revolution, he said, deploring the fact that they act without worry and with the feeling of being able to benefit from impunity.

Chawki Tabib also spoke of the efforts of some ministries to fight corruption, like the Ministry of Social Affairs, which has filed 21 corruption cases in court, the Ministry of Agriculture (13 files), the Ministry of Education (7 files), the Ministry of Finance (8 files).

Chawki Tabib said every adviser, government official or manager of public company involved in a case brought before the Economic and Financial Judicial Division over suspected corruption must submit his resignation.

The Prime Minister must remove any official concerned from his office if he does not voluntarily to facilitate the prosecution.

Regarding the report of the INLUCC, Tabib said the body has received 9,027 requests including 5,594 received via a toll free number, 275 by post, 2,200 filed with the registry and 958 received by the Prime Ministry.

It has transferred 94 cases to justice, while other cases have been filed or transferred to the relevant administrative directorates or to the Truth and Dignity Commission or are under investigation.
