Training for the Iraqi Commission of Integrity on "Fighting Illicit Enrichment according to International Standards and comparative experiences"

Training on "Fighting Illicit Enrichment according to International Standards and comparative experiences" for the Iraqi Commission of Integrity

Beirut, Lebanon, 12/18/2013 - 12/24/2013

Organized by: UNDP's Regional Project on Anti-Corruption and Integrity in the Arab Countries

A training course entitled "Combating Illicit Enrichment within International Standards and Comparative Experiences" was held in Beirut, Lebanon from 18 to 24 December 2013 where 30 staffs from the Iraqi Commission of Integrity participated along a team of prominent regional and international experts who lead the training.
Participants were able to recognize the historical development behind the concept of illicit enrichment and went deeper in understanding the requirements in its criminalization process according to regional and international standards. Participants also distinguished the real challenges faced during the criminalization process and ways to deal with them, and discussed the requirements of establishing an effective system for financial disclosure given its prominence in combating illicit enrichment. They also reviewed good practices and lessons learned from several comparative experiences from the region and the world, until reaching the Iraqi experience where they explored the strengths and ways of developing them.
During the training, a field visit to the Lebanese House of Representatives was organized where a panel discussion with MPs and Lebanese officials took place. The panel discussion centered on the realities of corruption in Lebanon and ways to combat it, and then focused on the Lebanese experience in amending the law on "illicit enrichment". The training included as well several practical exercises that enabled participants to enhance their ability to investigate cases of illicit enrichment and to draft illicit enrichment legislations.
The training is the first in the framework of the joint training program co-organized by the "Arab Anti-Corruption and Integrity Network" (ACINET) in collaboration with the " Iraqi Commission of Integrity " and with the support of the “Institute of Research and Development Consultancy” (IDRAC) and UNDP’s regional project on Anti-Corruption and integrity in the Arab Countries (UNDP-ACIAC).
