MEXICO GRANTS ITS CONSENT TO RECEIVE ON-SITE VISITS AND VOLUNTEERS TO BE ANALYZED AT THE START OF THE FOURTH ROUND OF THE OAS ANTICORRUPTION MECHANISM

Mexico, through its Permanent Mission to the OAS, has formally granted its consent to receive on-site visits, an innovative step in the review process for the Fourth Round of the Follow-Up Mechanism on the Implementation of the Inter-American Convention against Corruption (MESICIC), which is to begin in 2012.

With this consent, Mexico joins Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Panama, Paraguay, Saint Kitts and Nevis, the United States and Uruguay as States Parties to the MESICIC that have granted their consent in accordance with the Methodology for Conducting On-Site Visits that was adopted by the Committee of Experts of the Mechanism.

In addition, in the same communication sent by the Permanent Mission to the Technical Secretariat of the MESICIC, Mexico formally requested to be included in the list of States Parties that have volunteered to be reviewed at the start of the Fourth Round and lead, along with Guatemala, Brazil and El Salvador, the sequence of countries for this round.

The Technical Secretariat expects to continue receiving information from those States Parties that have yet to provide their consent for on-site visits as well as information on more volunteers to be reviewed at the start of the next round.
