On International Anti-Corruption Day, December 9, the British Ambassador to Chișinău, Steven Fisher, participated at the inauguration of the exhibition “Corruption in Moldova. 30 years of struggle,” organized by Ziarul de Gardă.
“Corruption undermines democracy and democratic institutions, slows economic development, and contributes to political instability. The active, free and independent press is an integral part of a mature democracy, which is why the United Kingdom has been supporting the independent media in Moldova since 2016,” said the British Ambassador to Chișinău, Steven Fisher.
On Thursday, December 9, 2021, at 12.00, on the International Anti-Corruption Day, ZdG organized a thematic exhibition at the National Museum of History in Chișinău, entitled “Corruption in Moldova. 30 years of struggle.”
The exhibition is a timeline of the history of over 3 decades of Moldova, which combines countless frauds, money laundering, nepotism, abuses in public office with the effort, energy, and spirit of fighting corruption generated in society, implicitly in investigative offices, in civil society organizations, in protest movements or in families.
The exhibition contains documents, photographs, testimonies of people who tried in small steps to bring to light, year after year, revelations of corruption but also discussions about transparency, respect for fundamental rights, and access to information.
The exhibition is a space for reflection and information for all categories of the population and will last 2 weeks.
Activists, journalists, members of the Parliament, the Government, law enforcement institutions, representatives of the diplomatic corps accredited in Chișinău were invited to the opening.
