As much as it seems like a painstaking challenge to overcome corruption in New Zealand local government and councils, the day does not seem to be far off when actual corruption free governance would become a reality. To my pleasure, I recently found out the strict measures and actions taken against the Sports department where teams and government officials were found guilty of trespassing legal boundaries. Here’s a small walk through the different milestones that have been achieved against the fight of anti corruption in New Zealand Sports Department that have been made mandatory by the law.
Upcoming Policy Against Match Fixing
There are some excellent policies regarding match fixing crime that are expected to be released by mid 2014. The main area that it would cover includes the consumption of performance enhancement drugs by players such as peptides. Moreover, there were codes cracked by the Australian Crime Commission (ACC) that are subject to being banned and monitored too. This points out towards a more clean and healthy environment for sports, mostly what New Zealand citizens have been looking out for.
Spruce Up Sportsmen Reputation
Although there was little evidence gathered against athletes who were puppets to government officials in match fixing, the government is still actively working towards safeguarding the reputation of sportsmen for the country’s interests. No matter how many flaws or shortcomings there would be in the system, it is better to have a good word for New Zealand players across the globe since that is the general image which goes out to the world.
Productive Team Formation for Closer Checkups
One of the most positive outcomes in the Sports New Zealand regard is that productive teams of Customs, Police, Fraud Officers and Sports Organization has been formed that is due to conduct multiple meetings annually for a strict and clean sports department. Through the active sessions that would be held, vital information regarding the issue can circulate in a better manner ensuring controlled avoidance of any corruption in the field. It also means that the citizens of New Zealand will be able to get equal opportunity in sports as national players without the inherent interruption of politicians taking up such decisions due to vested interests.
