The governments of Guyana, the United States, Peru and Uruguay confirmed this week to the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States (OAS) their consent to receive on site visits as part of the Fifth Round of the Mechanism for Follow-up on the Implementation of the Inter-American Convention against Corruption (MESICIC) of the OAS.

 The four countries notified the MESICIC Technical Secretariat of their decisions in accordance with the Methodology for Conducting On-site Visits. Both also consented to and received on-site visits during the Fourth Round of Review.

For the Fifth Round, which begins in March, the MESICIC Committee of Experts will review the implementation of the provisions in Article III, paragraphs 3 and 12 of the Inter-American Convention against Corruption, which refer to the needed instruction to government personnel and the study of preventive measures that take into account the relationship between equitable compensation and probity in public service.

Moreover, the Committee will analyze the follow-up on the recommendations formulated to the States Parties in the Second Round, on topics such as public procurement, hiring of public servants, whistleblower protection and the criminalization of acts of corruption under the Convention.

The affirmative answers from these four countries join those previously expressed by Chile and Mexico, who communicated their consent to receive on-site visits as part of the Fifth round of MESICIC.

    “Hiring of public servants”

    Answer:
    Anybody who will vote for the Broad Fraud and keep their mouths shut about the abuses that went on under 'No Money Pepe' such as the Pizza shop manager who was appointed head of the Oncology Department at Maldonado.

    And I kid you not.

    More amazing is the fact that a pizza manager can do a better job than professional politicians did during 180 years...

    “such as the Pizza shop manager who was appointed head of the Oncology Department at Maldonado”
