Spanish network

In a meeting held at the headquarters of the Anti-Fraud Office of Catalonia on 29 June 2018, the Spanish anti-corruption authorities agreed to create a stable network with regular meetings to share common strategies in the fight against the phenomenon of corruption. In the words of Miguel Ángel Gimeno, director of the Catalan Anti-Fraud Office, “our aim is to share anti-corruption strategies until such time as the government decides to create a National Anti-Corruption plan”.

The first meeting of Spanish anti-corruption authorities brought together the head of the Anti-Fraud Office of Catalonia, Miguel Ángel Gimeno, the director of the Agency for the Prevention and Fight against Fraud of the Community of Valencia, Joan Llinares, the director of the Office for Prevention and Fight against Corruption in the Balearic Islands, Jaime Far, the conselleiro of the Court of Auditors of Galicia, Constantino Carreiras, the director of the Municipal Office against Fraud and Corruption of Madrid, Carlos Granados, and the heads of the Office for Transparency and Best Practice of Barcelona: the director of Management Control Services, Maria del Mar Giménez-Salinas, and the director of Analysis Services of the same institution, Rosa Maria Sánchez.

The network of anti-corruption agencies is a space for unification of operating criteria that respects the independence of each institution. It enables members to take advantage of each other’s training and prevention methodologies and specific experiences, with the aim of enhancing the effectiveness of their activities.
