RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah was notified officially Sunday that the UN accepted Palestine as a signatory to the UN Convention Against Corruption of 2003.

According to an official letter from UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Palestine has become an official signatory of the convention as of May 2, 2014. The letter was sent to chief of the Palestinian Authority’s anti-corruption commission Rafiq Natsha, who delivered it to Hamdallah Sunday.

Natsha highlighted that his committee would take certain moves to amend its laws and regulations so they can match the convention.

Hamdallah, for his part, asserted that his government would provide full support to the anti-corruption commission so as to protect public and private property and money.
