The Anti-Corruption Commission has recovered a total sum of Five Billion, Four Hundred and Sixty-Five Million, Nine Hundred and Eleven Thousand, Three Hundred and Seventy-Four Leones (Le: 5,465,911,374) within the last five months.

 These monies, recovered between 6th June and 29th October, 2018, are with the Commission awaiting onward payments into the Consolidated Revenue Fund.

These recoveries are from various corruption-related matters, including but not limited to, debt collection and investigations into the Transport and Ports Management System at the Queen Elizabeth II Quay, the NASSIT ferries, double-dipping in public institutions, and refund of compensation for unused property for the construction of the Hill-side Bye-Pass Road.

The Commission wishes to reassure the general public that it will not relent in ensuring that public funds are protected, and where necessary, recovered.
