The Central Bureau of Investigation Director Ranjit Sinha on Monday inaugurated the 7th five-day Interpol Global Programme on “Anti-Corruption, Financial Crime and Asset Recovery” on Monday.
“Targeting the supply-side of corruption is an imperative and India is in the process of addressing this emerging area as part of various measures that are being adopted to make the Indian legal framework compliant to the United Nations Convention against Corruption,” said Mr. Sinha on the occasion.
Sixty-two participants from various countriesare attending the programme.
He observed that the proposed Prevention of Corruption Act Amendment Bill, 2013, criminalises active bribery in consonance with the international standards.
Stating that corruption was a two-way street, the CBI Director said collusive corruption was today a big challenge.
