A number of stakeholders including the Office of the Integrity Commission were among institutions the OAS Committee of Experts held meetings with while conducted its Fourth Round of Review in Grenada.
The Integrity Commission, on Wednesday 23 April 2014, met with the OAS Committee of Experts of the follow-up Mechanism on the Implementation of the Inter-American Convention Against Corruption (MESICIC), as that Committee undertook its Fourth Round of Review in Grenada. That meeting was part of the required follow-up mechanism for the implementation of the Inter-American Convention Against Corruption, which was ratified by the State of Grenada.
A news release from the Office of the Integrity Commission said that during the meeting, Commissioners apprised MESICIC of the progress the Commission has made since its establishment. That sharing included mentioning some of the difficulties faced by the Commissioners, as the Commission seeks to perform its functions under Integrity in Public Life Act (No. 24 of 2013) and the Prevention of Corruption Act (No. 15 of 2007).
The Integrity Commission informed MESICIC of the Declarations it has so far received and reported that the majority of the requested Declarations have been received. The release said that final notices have been served on some persons who have not complied with the law in that they have failed to file Declarations of income, assets and liabilities.
