GOB Moving Straight to Accession for UNCAC

Belmopan. November 1, 2016. At its meeting today, Cabinet agreed that Belize would accede directly to the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) in keeping with the process for treaties already in force.36-anti-corruption

This means that rather than signing the Convention on December 9, 2016, with Senate ratification at a later date to be determined, the Senate will be asked to meet in a Special Session to formally consider and approve a motion authorising accession to the UNCAC. Following approval by the Senate, the Prime Minister will, on December 9, 2016, sign the Instrument of Accession that would be submitted to the United Nations Secretary General bringing the treaty into force in Belize on that very day.
