Corruption prevention and fighting agency HAPLUCIA to be restructured

(Togo First) - The High Authority for the Prevention and Fight against Corruption and Related Offenses (Haplucia) will be restructured in line with challenges facing the new Togolese government. This was disclosed by Christian Trimua (Minister of Human Rights, Citizenship Training and Relations with the Institutions of the Republic, and spokesman for the Government).

According to Trimua, this restructuration falls within the framework of the good governance axis of President Faure Gnassingbé’s 2020-2025 presidency (during which the government plans to implement 36 projects in six major axes, including good governance and financial resources mobilization).

The restructuration is one of the campaign promises made by the president who announced (in February 2020) that an institution would be created to tackle economic crimes and similar offenses. At the time, many people overlooked that promise because they were disappointed with the HAPLUCIA.

Indeed, launched in 2014, the HAPLUCIA failed to take concrete actions despite its numerous awareness campaigns. For Christian Trimua, this restructuration will provide the HAPLUCIA with all the necessary means to effectively fight corruption and economic crimes. "Capital flight is no more possible in Togo,” the Minister said.

In 2018, the country stagnated in the Transparency International report while in 2019, it lost one point.
