Former Contractor General, Greg Christie, says he’s pleased with the decision of the Integrity Commission to call for the establishment of an anti-corruption court.
Mr. Christie says he first made the call approximately nine years ago.
He says it must be noted that many countries have successfully set up anti-corruption courts in a bid to fight the scourge.
Mr. Christie says these countries include: Pakistan, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Croatia and the Philippines.
The former Contractor General made his comments on twitter.
The Integrity Commission called for the establishment of an anti-corruption court in its first annual report which was tabled in the Senate on Friday.
Chairman of the Commission, Justice Karl Harrison, argued that a special court dedicated to corruption cases would be a key measure in the fight against corruption.
Justice Harrison says an anti-corruption court is necessary especially given that parish courts are already overburdened and have serious backlogs of cases.
