DRC: UDECOM calls for a cross-checking of ministers’ asset declarations

The Union for the Defence of Consumer Rights (UDECOM) requires the Attorney General of the Republic to cross-check declarations of assets made by all members of the Ilunkamba Government. The president of this civil society organization justifies this request in the interest of transparency.

In a letter dated October 9, 2019, Me. Chief Tshipamba Ngambamalu reminds the Attorney General that by signing the deed of commitment, the members of the Government have expressed to the world their commitment to make good governance and the fight against corruption their main focus.

He points out that the declaration of assets by ministers took place after the investiture and the signature of deeds of commitment, which is contrary to established principles. He wondered about the effectiveness of a post-employment declaration of assets, thirty days later.

« UDECOm sees this delay as a major obstacle to preventing the population from monitoring the evolution of the heritage of its leaders. However, the very essence of any declaration of assets is to allow the tax administration and, by extension, citizens to have a right of access to the assets of their managers, » deplored Me. Chief Tshipamba.

Moreover, it should be noted that this declaration is not generally followed by a post-audit to reconcile the assets situation on entry to that of any public agent.

UDECOM considers that this legal obligation should not apply only to members of the Government. It should extend to provincial and national deputies; senators and any public person who handles state funds since it imposes an obligation of accountability.

« We want this constitutional obligation to declare assets to cease to be a mere formality or better still a political act, » insisted the president of this anti-corruption structure.

Finally, the Union for the Defence of Consumer Rights proposes to involve the Public Prosecutor’s Office at the Court of Auditors, the Judicial Police, the Fist and other specialised services in cross-checking the information provided in each asset declaration.

It is up to him to conclude: « otherwise, any sanction measure that may be envisaged would be impossible against leaders who have illegally enriched themselves during the performance of their duties. »
