THE Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has vowed to continue intensifying investigations into graft cases by working professionally and objectively this year.
Last year, the commission received 2, 337 reports of corruption cases compared to 1, 228 in 2011.
ACC public relations manager Timothy Moono said in Lusaka yesterday that the commission would this year continue to work diligently without fear or favour in line with its priority areas of operations.
He said at a press briefing that ACC was geared to build on its successes and continue to develop regulations such as gift registers, asset disclosures, and whistleblower protection in line with pieces of legislation.
“In this regard, the commission will focus on completing the setting up of the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) that started in 2012.
