YEREVAN, October 31. /ARKA/. A handbook entitled Honesty and Reporting by Policemen prepared by the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) and translated into Armenian with support from the OSCE Yerevan office has been presented Thursday.
Corruption is a complicated phenomenon, and it is very important to combat it at various levels and structures, including the police, head of the OSCE Yerevan Office Andrey Sorokin said. He expressed hopes the handbook will become an important instrument for strategy developers, as well as police staff in fighting against corruption.
