PHNOM PENH (31 May 2016) – The UN Resolution on Action Against Corruption (A/RES/51/59), adopted by the General Assembly on 28 January 1997, is still as relevant today as it was nearly 20 years ago. The first general principle states: “A public office, as defined by national law, is a position of trust, implying a duty to act in the public interest. Therefore, the ultimate loyalty of public officials shall be to the public interests of their country as expressed through the democratic institutions of government.” Read the full resolution and the International Code of Conduct for Public Officials in English | Khmer.
