From 29 to 30th June, UNDP Global Anti-Corruption Initiative (GAIN), in partnership with the Singapore Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB), organized a training workshop for a 14-member delegation from the Nepal Commission for the Investigation of Abuse Authority (CIAA). The training was developed following a capacity assessment that was conducted for CIAA Nepal in 2014 which identified the need for capacity development to enhance the knowledge and skills of officers in the investigation of corruption and abuse of authority cases. The delegation attended a training by CPIB on prevention, investigation, case management, risk analysis, polygraph and computer forensic at its headquarters/training facilities in Singapore. The training was followed by a reception at the UNDP Global Centre for Public Service Excellence, where the delegation was welcomed by the Head of the Nepal Mission to Singapore, Mr Madhusudan Muljibhai Patel.
The delegation left for Malaysia on 30th of June to participate in further training facilitated by the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Agency (MACC) and the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Academy. UNDP GAIN looks forward to continuing this cooperation in a proactive manner and is confident that the CIAA, with the support of UNDP, will create a pool of trained investigation experts, who can further train new staff members of CIAA.
