Dili, 29/08/2012–Five new investigators of the Anti-Corruption Commission (CAC) are sworn-in today after completed a two-month in-house training on various technical issues related to criminal investigation of corruption cases. The sworn-in ceremony was held at CAC’s Office and marked with a handover of certificates of completion by CAC Senior Management to the five finalists.
The newly-graduated investigators were delighted to complete their specialized schooling as it helped strengthening their technical skills and knowledge and widening their horizons on how to handle corruption-related crimes investigation more effectively and in professional manner. As one of the new investigators said… “Any specialized training is always useful for people’s knowledge and skills development—the recent preparation course helps strengthening our technical knowledge and skills to perform our work with greater confidence.”
The two-months training was supported by USAID through the Millennium Challenge Corporation funds and was implemented by the CASALS Office in Dili.
CAC Senior Management and staff were very pleased with the training result as it is very much in the interest of the Institution to strengthening its human resources skills and knowledge as part of institutional building effort. Speaking in the ceremony, Anti-Corruption Commissioner Adérito de Jesus Soares stated that CAC has the desire to invest in its human resources capacity, either through in-house or overseas training, and it is part of the Office’s strategic planning program for the next two years.
With these additional officers, CAC is now armed with 15 investigators to continue carry out criminal corruption-related investigation works. It is expected that their functions will ease the division of labor among CAC investigators.
