Professor (Emeritus) Mordechai Kremnitzer, former Dean of the Faculty of Law at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, has been appointed to the board of the International Anti-Corruption Academy of the United Nations.

Israel is one of the founding members of the Academy, established in September 2010 as an international collaborative initiative by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, the European Anti-Fraud Office and the Republic of Austria. It aims to promote the UN treaty against corruption through education, research and promotion of international cooperation in the fight against corruption.

Prof. Kremnitzer said upon his appointment: ''The Academy was established in recognition that corruption harms economic growth, equality of opportunity and public trust in governmental institutions and in the democratic system. For example, in his opinion on the closure of the investigation against Avigdor Lieberman, the Attorney General of Israel mentioned several times the problems arising from difficulties in international cooperation against corruption with regard to obtaining evidence and the weight of evidence. This opinion demonstrates the vital need to promote international cooperation in the fight against corruption in a global world where corruption knows no bounds. ''

Professor Kremnitzer is active in the areas of civil rights and political and legal anti-corruption. He was a member of the board of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, headed the Minerva Center for Human Rights and the civil committee for systematically addressing violations by civil servants, and currently serves as vice president for research at the Israel Democracy Institute.
