The National Office for the Fight against Fraud and Corruption (Ofnac) published its latest activity report for the year 2023 on Tuesday April 30. With 93 pages, this document is characterized by a change in size. Indeed, despite the large number of investigation reports (40) transmitted to the judicial authorities responsible for prosecutions, Ofnac has decided not to publish the names of people involved in cases of corruption and related offenses. This is a first since the creation of this body to fight corruption and similar offenses in Senegal in December 2012. In this document, its new president and former public prosecutor appointed since 1er December 2022 and which had stood out for the classification without follow-up of the various reports transmitted to it by this body justified this unexpected change by a deliberation of the Assembly of members of Ofnac dated December 6, 2023. “By a another deliberation taken on the same date (December 6, 2023), the Assembly of members, concerned with respecting the principle of presumption of innocence and aware that only the judicial authorities are authorized to pronounce convictions, also ordered that the names of the persons involved are no longer published in the activity reports and that instead, information is given on the titles of the latter or on the date or period of the facts to avoid unfortunate confusions. », Informs the president of Ofnac Serigne Bassirou Gueye in this 2023 report.
