Holy See adopts UN Convention against Corruption

Pope Francis has asked the Vatican to be exemplary in the fight against corruption and meet the set international standards in this regard.

Therefore, the Secretary of State has announced that the Holy See will conform to the Merida Convention against Corruption. This requires countries to implement anti-corruption measures concerning its laws, institutions and practices.

From now on, the Roman Curia and the Vatican City State will review its administrative procedures to align them to the standards set by the Convention.

Through this compliance, the Vatican says it hopes to contribute to increased transparency and proper management of public affairs in the international community.
