Togo: Anti-corruption regulator and BOAD ink key agreement

(Togo First) - The Togolese anti-corruption regulator (HAPLUCIA) and the West African Development Bank (BOAD) inked last Friday a five-year cooperation agreement to fight corruption and related offenses, in Togo. 

Through the agreement, the two entities aim to set up the proper framework to prevent, detect, investigate, and fight corruption and related offenses in cross-border transactions. 

In detail, the BOAD will allow its general audit department to share information with the HAPLUCIA.

According to HAPLUCIA’s boss, Essohana Wiyao, the deal will reinforce the regulator. "Through this agreement, we formalize our cooperation to be stronger. Together, we will strengthen our capacity to act effectively," he said just after the agreement was signed. 

The BOAD’s support aligns with its “policy to prevent and fight corruption and fraud in its operations, and its whistleblower protection policy.”
