‘Effective use of law a deterrent to corruption’

A three-day workshop on Prevention of Corruption Act, organised by the Anti Corruption Bureau for police officers from across the State, ended in the Suvarna Soudha in Belagavi on Wednesday.

Officers, legal experts and tax practitioners addressed sessions on the three days.

G. Narendar, judge of the High Court of Karnataka, Dharwad Bench, spoke in detail about corruption in society and how it can be prevented using the provisions of the Act. He asked officers to ensure that there were no mistakes or errors in documents they prepare while fighting cases, so that the Act is implemented effectively.
