TELL THE G20 TO TAKE ACTION AGAINST SECRET COMPANY OWNERSHIP. #UNMASKTHECORRUPT
Posted 15 September 2014
For far too long, corrupt officials have been able to stash their ill-gotten gains in foreign banks and/or invest them in luxurious mansions, expensive cars or elite education for their children. They have done this with total impunity and in blatant disregard for the citizens they are supposed to serve. They are aided by the complicity and complacency of countries and banking centres that allow illicit financial flows and entry of corrupt persons. This has to stop.
Transparency International and its partners announce the Unmask the Corrupt campaign, which aims to end the secrecy that aids and abets the shifting of the proceeds of corruption across borders. Money and power are not anonymous, nor should they be.
Championed by its national chapters, individual members and other activists, Transparency International, the global coalition against corruption, will follow the money wherever it may lead. After launching the campaign at the national level in June, several Transparency International chapters began spreading the message.
