Transparency International condamne les actes d’intimidation à l’encontre de sa section nationale au Sénégal

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat



Transparency International, l'organisation mondiale de lutte contre la corruption, condamne fermement les récentes menaces et violences dirigées contre les membres du Forum Civil, la section sénégalaise de Transparency International.

Depuis février 2013, les incidents se sont multipliés : une partie des locaux du Forum civil a été incendiée, des menaces de mort ont été proférées contre l’un de ses membres et un autre a été victime d'un cambriolage.

« Nous exprimons notre soutien au Forum Civil et à la qualité de son engagement dans la lutte contre la corruption au Sénégal. Les organisations de la société civile, les journalistes et les avocats doivent pouvoir travailler sans subir d’intimidation ou de représailles », a déclaré Huguette Labelle, la Présidente de Transparency International.

Forum Civil plaide pour la bonne gouvernance dans le secteur public. Il exhorte le gouvernement à mettre en place un Bureau national de lutte contre la fraude et la corruption et à créer une commission chargée de superviser le recouvrement des biens mal acquis et de diligenter des enquêtes et des poursuites.
