From 16 to 25 March 2021, the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) provided IT equipment to the anti-corruption teams across BiH. The delivery is part of the Mission’s efforts to combat corruption.
The IT donations were delivered to the anti-corruption teams in the following cantons: Una-Sana, Posavina, Tuzla, Zenica-Doboj, Bosnia-Podrinje, Central Bosnia, Herzegovina-Neretva, West-Herzegovina. Anti-corruption team of the Republika Srpska also received donation. Further deliveries to the Agency for the Prevention of Corruption and the Co-ordination of the Fight against Corruption, anti-corruption teams of the Federation of BiH, Canton Sarajevo, Canton 10 and the Brcko District BiH are planned by mid-April this year.
“The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated IT challenges that the anti-corruption teams face in their work. One of the pivotal issues that these teams have been facing lately is a lack of adequate IT equipment,” said Kathleen Kavalec, Head of the OSCE Mission to BiH, adding that that providing the teams with IT equipment will enable them to work more efficiently.
The fight against corruption is one of the priorities of the OSCE Mission to BiH. Together with authorities in BiH, the Mission will continue working on preventing and combatting corruption for the benefit of the country and its citizens.
