The National Anti-Corruption Commission (Conac) has set its sights on property owners this year. The commission, led by President Dieudonné Massi Gams, will investigate the source of funds used for rapid construction projects, as announced during a New Year’s staff meeting on January 31.
This marks Conac’s inaugural foray into the real estate sector. However, Gams assures that the commission’s founding decree, signed on March 11, 2006, grants it the authority to inspect and verify all real estate transactions. The decree empowers Conac to conduct investigations into any suspected corruption and carry out inspections.
Gams characterizes 2024 as a year of significant commitment to combating corruption. As part of this effort, Conac plans to expand its investigative scope to include the origin of property owners’ funds.
