Establish an Independent Commission Against Corruption by Christmas 2013

The Cook Islands is a signatory to the United Nations Convention Against Corruption. However, Transparency International has identified that there is no credible anti-corruption agency in the Cook Islands. Long standing allegations of corruption are neither investigated nor acted upon. Corruption weakens public confidence in the very democratic institutions established to protect and promote the people's interests. With the almost daily revelations of corruption within the Cook Islands Government whether "Colagate", "Tissuegate", the Dalvivian tax haven or fishing licences, it is imperative that an Independent Commission Against Corruption be established prior to Christmas 2013 in order to restore public confidence in the Cook Islands Government's integrity as well as the international reputation of the Cook Islands Government abroad.
