SAHA seeks information on corruption

In anticipation of 9 December, International Anti-Corruption Day, SAHA has begun making access to information requests to government departments about how corruption is handled, how often it happens, and how officials work to prevent it. To date, SAHA has made requests to the Department of Basic Education, the Department of Correctional Services, the Gauteng Office of the Premier, and the Department of Trade and Industry. You can view the progress of these requests, and others, on SAHA's Freedom of Information Programme website.

On 31 October 2012, the Department of Trade and Industry responded to one request by providing their policies and procedures about corruption. SAHA will be archiving these materials and posting them online soon.

If you are worried about corruption in your community and want more information, SAHA may be able to help. Learn more about how to make information requests by reviewing the Freedom of Information Programme resources or contacting the Freedom of Information Programme.
