Private prosecution of corruption and corruption related offences

An option worth considering is the private prosecution of corruption and corruption-related offences. To make this attractive to the private sector, there is the need to introduce a generous reward scheme that will not only compensate for expenses but sufficiently reward the efforts that go into recovering money lost to corruption.

Commitment filtering:

Specific: ❌ no

This statement can be divided into two commitments where the second is predicated on the first one. Both commitments identify “the private prosecution of corruption and corruption related offences” as a specific anti-corruption mechanism. However, both statements cannot be considered specific enough due to the phrase “an option worth considering”. This phrase is non-committal and therefore does not meet the specificity benchmark for this report.


Measurable: ❌ no

The second part of this commitment identified a clear measurable action to “introduce a generous reward scheme”. This could have been considered for monitoring, but its dependence on the first part of this commitment means the commitment will be difficult to monitor due to the lack of specificity and measurability of the first part.
