Speaker of the Shura Council HE Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid Al Mahmoud, who is also president of the Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (GOPAC), on Tuesday chaired the organisation’s executive committee meeting via video conference.

The speaker of the Shura Council also highlighted the leading role of Qatar in the fight against corruption and commended the decision of the Amir His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani to award the Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani Anti-Corruption Excellence Award, which coincides with the International Anti-Corruption Day on December 9 of each year.
