The ACC is an elite group committed to the highest standards of integrity, honesty and effective service in the fight against corruption. No person who has been convicted of a criminal offence, other than a minor traffic violation, may be appointed in any capacity whatsoever. Persons dismissed or called upon to resign from the ACC will not be reappointed in any circumstances. Where a person has not been convicted of a crime but is currently being tried of an offence or has faced an administrative process and has been dismissed or terminated or asked to resign from any other institution and whose employment may bring down the standards of the ACC such a person shall not be employed by the Commission.
In exceptional circumstances where the exigencies of the job so demands, the ACC shall conditionally appoint staff members. In the event that those staff members violated any of the provisions in this document, such staff shall be summarily dismissed.
