Directorate on Corruption and Economic Crime (DCEC)
DCEC CONCERNED ABOUT THREATS TO ITS INFORMERS====== The Directorate on Corruption and Economic Crime (DCEC) would like to raise a concern about the safety of its informers. Of recent, there have been concerns about the protection of people who report to the DCEC more especially from their principals or supervisors. These complaints which came through mediums, such as the DCEC Facebook page, phone calls, and one-on-one interactions, are being taken seriously and the DCEC is working around the clock in pursuit of those behind the intimidations. The DCEC would like to reassure the public that there are protective mechanisms that are given to its informers and all investigation matters are treated with outmost confidentiality. Section 45A of the Amended Corruption and Economic Crime Act of 2013 criminalizes any act or threat sanctioned or shown to a DCEC informer, and any person convicted under this Section will be liable to a fine of P10 000 or five years imprisonment or to both. We wish to encourage the public to continue with the good job of reporting corruption; it is the right thing to do. We would like to encourage all those who have been victimized or are being maltreated as a result of working with the DCEC to come forward and report the threats; we promise our informers that we guarantee their safety through the Law and will deal with any matter relating to the issue being discussed.======== For more information you can contact DCEC at the following addresses: Email us at: dcec@gov. bw / reporttodcec@gov. bw You can also call us at 391 4002 or 3604 200 OUR TOLL FREE NUMBER IS: 0800 700 100
