(Business in Cameroon) - Actions by Cameroonian anti-embezzlement and corruption institutions have made it possible to save about XAF375billion in 2017, the National Anti-Corruption Commission (Conac) indicates in the related report.

The document issued December 28, 2018, listed the National Financial Investigation Agency (Anif) as the leader in anti-embezzlement actions. This agency alone, the report said, helped recover XAF255 billion over a year.

The National Anti-Corruption Commission (Conac) said it has itself saved more than XAF52 billion. This added to the XAF52 billion raised through pecuniary sentences, with files transmitted to the courts, brings the total amount recovered by Conac to XAF104 billion.

During the period reviewed, the Higher State Audit Office, via the Budgetary and Financial Disciplinary Council (Cdbf), saved XAF7.5 billion from corruption. Meanwhile, the Special Criminal Court (TCS) mobilized XAF8.3 billion and the Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court, on behalf of the State, recovered just over XAF51 million, the report said.
