OAS Anti-Corruption Mechanism to visit Haiti in April

The Anticorruption Mechanism of the Organization of American States (OAS) will hold on site visits in April to Belize, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname, in the framework of the Fourth Round of Review of the mechanism.

The process of on site visits to the six Caribbean countries, which are carried out with their consent, began last December, when the governments of these nations sent their replies to the questionnaire sent by MESICIC (Mechanism for Follow-Up on the Implementation of Inter-American Convention against Corruption) delegates as a prior step to the visit of the delegations. Each subgroup is composed of representatives of two member countries, with the support of officials from the OAS Department of Legal Cooperation.

Upon completion of these visits, the MESICIC will have carried out on-site reviews in 25 countries. A further five visits will take place for the following countries sometime between September 22 and October 17, 2014: Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Saint Kitts and Nevis, the United States and Venezuela.
