BRIEF: KSU to include anti-corruption courses
RIYADH, Feb 26, 2013 (Arab News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
King Saud University (KSU) will include an anti-corruption course in its curriculum.
This will open the door for the National Anti-Corruption Commission (Nazaha), in cooperation with the Ministry of Higher Education, to list such courses in the curricula of all 25 universities in the Kingdom, a local newspaper reported.
Nazaha already asked universities individually to endorse programs and plans that protect honesty and fight corruption, as well as to follow up their enforcement and assess the results.
Doing so would teach all students a scientific approach to fight corruption, said Nazaha. The plans of KSU coincide with the national strategic plan to fight corruption, in addition to the Cabinet's wishes to organize a commission in this context.
An official at Nazaha told Al-Hyat newspaper that the commission detected a number of violations at various municipalities, concerning the manual collection of fines and other license fees.
Nazaha issued notices to the Ministry of Municipalities and Rural Affairs to stop this method and start using formal receipts and vouchers when collecting fines and fees.
