King forms panel to follow up on integrity plan implementation
Amman, 2 February 2014

His Majesty King Abdullah on Sunday tasked former minister Rajai Muasher to chair a Royal commission entrusted with evaluating and following up on the implementation of the Executive Plan of National Integrity Charter.

The plan was endorsed by a national conference held last year, and in December, King Abdullah attended a ceremony to launch the National Integrity Charter and Executive Plan, where 2,000 officials, community leaders and representatives of various sectors were present.

The charter addresses major public concerns while its Executive Plan includes a detailed framework and timeline to complete a set of projects and laws to boost national integrity and prevent corruption.

The approved plans and programmes address financial corruption and set guidelines to safeguard public money and assets, uproot corruption in the wider sense of the word and improve services offered to citizens.

In a letter the King sent to Muasher Sunday assigning him to the mission, His Majesty described the charter as a landmark feature on the path of comprehensive reform which seeks to provide a better life for the people through boosting the democratic approach, fostering the values of justice, respecting citizens’ rights and safeguarding their freedoms.
