Ombudsman observes Anti-Corruption Day on Dec.9
06 December 2013

The Office of the Ombudsman leads the celebration of Anti-Corruption Day on December 9.

           The OMB is scheduled to hold simultaneous activities on December 9 with the launching of the University Integrity Tour at the University of the Philippines – National College of Public Administration and Governance (UP-NCPAG) and the holding of the 1st Barangay Integrity Forum in Mangaldan, Pangasinan.

           Both activities are part of the Integrity Caravan launched by the OMB during its 25th anniversary last May 12, 2012. The Caravan aims to communicate and engage the public and private sector on the various programs and projects of the Office to further build a broad-based strategic partnership of all anti-corruption stakeholders, composed of key government agencies, local government units (LGUs), private institutions, academic institutions, the business sector, development partners, people’s organizations (POs), civil service organizations (CSOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and the general public.

           The University Integrity Tour, which is designed to build the foundations of good governance and anti-corruption in the country’s educational system, shall be launched at the UP-NCPAG from 9:00 – 12:00 noon. OMB and UP-Diliman officials as well as representatives from the UP-NCPAG Student Council and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are expected to attend the event. It is scheduled to be duplicated in other universities in Visayas and Mindanao next year.

           On the other hand, the series of Barangay Integrity Fora is aimed at educating barangay officials on ethical standards, good governance and public accountability. The 1st Barangay Integrity Forum, to be held in Mangaldan, Pangasinan, is expected to be attended by OMB and LGU officials. Similar activities are also scheduled to be held in Cebu and Davao.

           Recognizing that corruption is a serious crime that slows down economic growth and development, “this year [the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime] UNODC and UNDP have developed a joint global campaign, focusing on how corruption hinders efforts to achieve the internationally agreed upon Millennium Development Goals and impacts education, health, justice, democracy, prosperity and development.”

           On October 31, 2003, the UN General Assembly adopted the United National Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC), an international legal instrument against corruption, and designated December 9 as International Anti-Corruption Day. President Benigno Aquino III through Proclamation No.506 dated November 16, 2012 declared December 9 as National Anti-Corruption Day.

           Republic Act No. 10589 (May 27, 2013) declares December of every year as “Anti-Corruption Month.”

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
