Bhutan Times - - Home -

The spe­cial re­serve po­lice force train­ing cen­ter, Royal Bhutan Po­lice, Tashigat­shel, Chukha re­quested the Anti – Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion to de­liver a talk on ethics, in­tegrity and pro­fes­sion­al­ism in the public ser­vice to the In­te­grated Train­ing of the Na­tional Land com­mis­sion staffs. Com­mis­sioner Kezang Jamt­sho from the Com­mis­sion talked on the topic – In­tegrity and Pro­fes­sion­al­ism in Public Ser­vice: Un­der­stand­ing the Role of In­tegrity in Self man­age­ment. The talk was de­liv­ered to 35 Na­tional Land Com­mis­sion Staffs on 13 April 2015.

The talk fo­cused in­tegrity as some­thing in­ter­nal to one­self though out­side con­di­tions tend to in­flu­ence it, if one is not aware and care­ful in one’s deal­ings in public life. It was stressed that if one is dis­ci­plined and dili­gent, no out­side fac­tors or con­di­tions would mat­ter and there­fore, in­tegrity is how you man­age your­self or your public deal­ings. It was pointed out that next level of im­por­tance was in­sti­tu­tional or sys­tem in­tegrity so that the en­vi­ron­ment would be con­ducive for prac­tic­ing in­tegrity. Cor­rup­tion tri­an­gle, in­tegrity tri­an­gle and cor­rup­tion screen­ing tools, among oth­ers were ex­plained to un­der­stand the con­cept of peo­ple and in­sti­tu­tional man­age­ment as a rem­edy against lapses lead­ing to cor­rup­tion.

Two land re­lated cases on how land grab­bing is done was pre­sented to il­lus­trate crim­i­nal con­spir­acy and crim­i­nal breach of trust by of­fi­cials who are the cus­to­dian of the State.
