Who and what?

Moderator:

In April 2016 the Panama Papers, an unprecedented leak of 11.5m

files from the database of one of the world’s biggest offshore law

firms, gave a new light to grand corruption.

The papers pointed to potential grand corruption in all branches of

government, including the judiciary, since names of judges were also

on the list. This is particularly worrisome because when the integrity of

judges is being questioned, this undermines people’s rights and

threatens the overall rule of law. What are the ways to ensure that

judges are sanctioned when proven to be corrupt?

The Programme for Integrity, In-

dependence and Accountability

in Judiciary (IIAJ) is a Global

Thematic Network Initiative of

Transparency International, lead-

ed by Transparency International

Romania on behalf of the move-

ment.

We aim that independent and ac-

countable judiciaries around the

world, committed to integrity, en-

sure the effective and impartial

interpretation and application of

anti-corruption laws and stand-

ards.

To achieve this, we will work with

a diverse spectrum of judicial ac-

tors and stakeholders, and mobi-

lize people to collectively calling

for an empowered yet accounta-

ble judiciary, as a key prerequi-

site for reducing impunity for cor-

ruption.

over 25 countries in

Asia-Pacific, helping

development,

de-

fend human rights,

achieve the eradica-

UNDP helps countries to develop

ment results. From 2015, UNDP

Sustainable Development.

In the area of rule of law and anti-

corruption, UNDP is supporting

governments in promoting trans-

parency, integrity and accounta-

bility in the judiciary to align their

obligations under article 11 of

the

United Nations Convention Against Corruption.

It is helping

judiciaries develop integrity plans

as part of broader judicial re-

forms by supporting capacity as-

sessments,

peer-to-peer

ex-

change and by providing access

to good practices that countries

can adopt to deliver justice for all.
