“An international anti-graft conference, concluded Friday in, failed to agree on the establishment of a consultative group of experts on asset recovery. The agreement was much demanded by poor countries. The failure means a defeat for developing countries in their efforts to strengthen the corruption eradication drive through the rejected consultative group.
The developed countries, led by the U.S., instead submitted a proposal for a draft resolution that focused on enhancing the capacity of the developing countries without a clear reference to what developed countries can do to help reclaim assets. On technical assistance from developed countries to fight corruption, the conference agreed on how donor countries could help developing nations enhance their capability in fighting corruption.”
