Public Officers who have not complied with the declaration process are further reminded of Section 122 (a) of the ACA 2008, which stipulates that; it is an offence if a Public Officer fails to declare his/her assets, and upon conviction will pay a fine of not less than twenty million Leones (Le20, 000,000) or imprisonment for a term not less than one year or to both such fine and imprisonment.

Also, one of the objects of the Commission is to take all steps necessary to prevent, suppress and eradicate corruption and corrupt practices. In line with this mandate, the Commission is putting all defaulting persons on notice that the ACC will soon publish the names of all Public Officers who have fully declared their Assets for 2017.
