Will the UN Secretary-General ask John Key why NZ hasn’t yet ratified the UN Convention vs Corruption?

www.unodc.org/unodc/en/treaties/CAC/signatories.html

Denmark Signed 10 Dec 2003 Ratified 26 Dec 2006

Singapore Signed 11 Nov 2005 Ratified 06 Nov 2009

New Zealand Signed 10 Dec 2003 Ratified

How come New Zealand – first equal with Denmark and Singapore in Transparency International’s ‘Corruption Perception Index’ hasn’t yet ratified the UN Convention vs Corruption?

If the UN Convention against Corruption, is ‘ the only global initiative that provides a framework for putting an end to corruption’ – and NZ hasn’t ratified it because our domestic legislation doesn’t yet comply with that framework
– then how on earth does NZ warrant that top-ranking ‘Corruption Perception Index’ status????

Wonder if CEOs of major NZ companies are calling on our NZ government to ratify the UN Convention vs Corruption?

Especially CEOs of NZ companies in the Finance sector? 😉

CEOs call for greater adherence to UN anti-corruption Convention New York,
7 May 2009

www.iccwbo.org/policy/anticorruption/index.html?id=29938

“Transparency International advocates stricter implementation of the UN Convention against Corruption, the only global initiative that provides a framework for putting an end to corruption.”

First step?

RATIFY the UN Convention against Corruption?
