Law enforcement

A United Nations report praises Israel for its enforcement of the law and fight against public corruption.

A new report by the United Nations Convention Against Corruption praised Israeli law enforcers for their efforts to eliminate public corruption. The report noted Israel’s success in putting leading public figures on trial, passing laws against bribery and maintaining cooperation among various authorities, both domestic and international.

The report was published as part of a comprehensive probe conducted in the framework of Israel’s participation in the convention, in which a UN delegation visited Israel. The UN investigative team dealt mainly with an examination of how Israel was observing half of the convention’s 70 sections.

Israel’s observance of the remaining sections will be assessed in a projected future round.

The assessment was coordinated by departments of the Ministry of Justice and the State Attorney’s Office.
