20th anniversary of GRECO

By Cassandra Tanti - June 24, 2019

GRECO, or the Group of States against Corruption, celebrated 20 years at an official ceremony in Strasbourg last week. The 49 member state organisation was attended by a delegation from Monaco including Director of Judicial Services, Laurent Anselmi. In his speech, Mr Anselmi reiterated Monaco’s ongoing cooperation and commitment to the organisation and its principles.

The conference was an opportunity to exalt the accomplishments of GRECO, as well as evaluate the needs of the member states, discuss risks and future challenges, and propose new programmes, notably a new anti-corruption programme.

The end goal is to establish a pan-European centre in the ongoing fight against corruption.

Monaco has been part of GRECO since 2008.
