National Strategy to Combat Corruption and Money Laundering (ENCCLA)

The National Strategy to Combat Corruption and Money Laundering (ENCCLA) was instituted in 2003 by the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, and relies on the participation of more than 70 public administration agencies, the Judiciary, the Public Ministry and civil society organizations. Its members meet every year to decide and agree on the activities to be carried out annually. The planning of these activities is conducted through working groups, and is then discussed in plenary sessions. In 2017, 11 actions were defined, ranging from norm proposals to implementation of actions at regional and municipal level.
