According to the info got by StampNews.com, the United Nations Postal Administration has joined with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime to produce a custom stamp sheet in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the United Nations Convention against Corruption. The sheet will be introduced at the fifth session of the Conference of the States Parties to the Convention in Panama City, Panama, on 25 November 2013.
Corruption is an insidious plague that has a wide range of corrosive effects on societies. It undermines democracy and the rule of law, leads to violations of human rights, distorts markets, erodes the quality of life and allows organized crime, terrorism and other threats to human security to flourish. The Convention introduces a comprehensive set of standards, measures and rules that all countries can apply in order to strengthen their legal and regulatory regimes to fight corruption.
