The Seychelles’ parliament will soon be called to vote on the proposed creation of an Anti-Corruption Commission as part of the government’s decision to step up the fight against graft.
If parliament approves the measure, the commission would be the first such body in the 115-island archipelago in the western Indian Ocean.
The decision was announced by President James Michel in his State of the Nation address on February 16. He received the backing of the Council of Ministers during an extraordinary session on Monday.
