With the consent of the Dominican Republic, a Commission of the OAS Anticorruption Mechanism (MESICIC), will carry out an on-site visit to that country from October 8 to 10, 2013, as part of the review process that this Mechanism has been executing during the course of the Fourth Round of Review, in relation to the implementation of the provision of the Convention related to oversight bodies for the prevention, investigation and sanction of acts of corruption, as well as the recommendations that were formulated to the countries in the First Round.

This Commission will be made up of representatives of Honduras and Uruguay to the MESICIC, and from the OAS Department of Legal Cooperation, in its capacity as the Technical Secretariat of this Mechanism. Meetings will take place with representatives of the main oversight bodies of the Dominican Republic, in order to gather on-the-ground information regarding the manner in which they carry out their functions, which will serve for the preparation and consideration of the report that the MESICIC will adopt in March, 2014. 

Similarly, it is anticipated that this Commission will meet with national civil society organizations, private sector representatives, professional associations and academics, in order to address topics related to the issues being reviewed in the Fourth Round of the MESICIC.
