Egypt illuminates Salaheddin Citadel On International Anti-Corruption Day

Nevine El-Aref , Wednesday 8 Dec 2021

In celebration of International Anti-Corruption Day (9 December), Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities illuminated the façades of Salaheddin Citadel in Cairo and Qaitbay Fortress in Alexandria with the words “International Anti-Corruption Day.”


According to the United Nations website, the 2021 International Anti-Corruption Day seeks to highlight the rights and responsibilities of everyone, including states, government officials, civil servants, law enforcement officers, media representatives, the private sector, civil society, academia, the public and youth, in tackling corruption.

It also encourages all people around the globe, not only governments, to unite to promote resilience and integrity on all levels of society to face this global problem.

The UN Convention against Corruption emphasises the responsibility of governments to put in place effective whistle-blower protection to ensure that persons who speak up are protected from retaliation.

These measures contribute to effective, accountable and transparent institutions and promote a culture of integrity and fairness.
