Minister of Justice Antti Häkkänen: Corruption is one of the worst enemies of democracy, sustainable development and market economy
“Corruption is one of the worst enemies of democracy, sustainable development and market economy. Corruption jeopardises the safety of societies, weakens democracy, increases inequalities, slows down economic development, and erodes the rule of law,” said Minister of Justice Antti Häkkänen when speaking at the Conference of the States Parties to the UN Convention against Corruption in Vienna today.
“The future of Europe will be shaped by our ability to protect and develop democracy, the rule of law and human rights,” said Minister of Justice Antti Häkkänen in his opening speech at ‘Finland 100 Years and the Rule of Law’ seminar at Finlandia Hall today. The seminar, organised by the Ministry of Justice, focused on the role of a good legal system for economic growth and the realisation of human rights in Europe and Finland.
