Batty, T. R.
Bringing the Corrupt to Justice - Case Studies

This paper describes the activities of the Directorate on Corruption and Economic Crime (DCEC) in Botswana, especially focussing on international co-operation in corruption investigations. A central problem of co-operation is the lack of information about relevant treaties, conventions and national regulations in the country being asked for assistance. It is suggested that a central, global data base with such information should be set up. Four case studies of problems and successes in international corruption investigations are presented.

Stevens, John:
Integrity is non-negotiable: Scotland Yard's strategic response to the dangers of corruption.

The paper describes the Corruption and Dishonesty Prevention Strategy launched by the London Metropolitan Police in December 1998. The strategy is based on the recognition that merely reacting to external allegations of corruption against individual members of the police is not sufficient to controlling the course of recurrent corruption behaviour in the force. A special internal intelligence unit identified a small group of very corrupt officers, who had forged partnerships with major criminals with whom they engaged in the most serious of offences. While corruption is less prevalent that it was in early decades, that which is present today is much more pernicious with much higher financial rewards that the escalation in organised crime and the drug trade can now offer. The Corruption and Dishonesty Prevention Strategy has six major strands, which include: inclusion, security screening and vetting, prevention and detection, supervision and leadership, focus and accountability, and corruption and dishonesty proofing.
