The Attorney General’s Office in Kabul has signed a five-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the woman-run organization, JFAO and with the international anti-corruption organization, UNISHKA. Through this MOU, UNISHKA and JFAO will be implementing Systems Integrity Assessments, Training, and Capacity Development for justice professionals across the country. “All of the programs will be implemented with a gender-lens,” according to JFAO Executive Director Mahfuza Folad. The program is funded by the United States Institute for Peace (USIP) and underwritten by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL). The primary purpose of the project is to reduce opportunities for corruption and strengthen internal control weaknesses. UNISHKA has extensive experience investigating corruption in conflict environments such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and The Balkans and hopes to impart that training to both the AGO and JFAO. Simultaneously, JFAO has extensive experience in implementing rule of law and justice programs focused on gender and equality issues. Together, these two organizations hope to reduce the effects of corruption in the justice sector, especially for women. Although COVID-19 has slowed the implementation of this project, it is moving steadily toward completion. The initial report focused on the Anti-Corruption and Human Resources Departments of the AGO will be completed within the next 30-60 days and will offer opportunities to enhance internal controls and systems integrity Image may contain: text
