Welcome to Anti-Corruption Commission, Sierra Leone
War on Corruption: Welcome to the website of the Anti-Corruption Commission of Sierra Leone. The Commission provides the lead in the crusade against corruption in Sierra Leone and partners with other key institutions to prevent, eradicate and/or suppress corruption and corrupt practices.
We take a three pronged approach – prevention, education and prosecution – in the fight against corruption. But we cannot do it alone. We require the support of the general populace in this fight.

Please take time to browse through and send us your comments and feedback to help make it better and to help us in our work.
