His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani and Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamed unveiled on Friday an Anti-Corruption Monument in Putrajaya Square, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
They also honoured the winners of Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani International Anti-Corruption Excellence Award in the presence of UN Secretary-General's Representative and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) executive director Yury Fedotov.
The monument, shaped like a hand of steel, symbolises all countries around the world uniting to combat corruption. The geometrical configurations of the monument represent the combined efforts of all nations in stopping corruption. Spaces in the monument represent transparency.
The ceremonies were attended by former President of Tunisia Dr Mohamed Mouncef al-Marzouki, Malaysia's Foreign Minister Saifuddin bin Abdullah, Azerbaijan’s Minister of Justice Fikrat Mammadov, and a number of members of the Supreme Committee to select the winners and senior officials.
The event was also attended by the members of the official delegation accompanying the Amir, who later left Kuala Lumpur after a working visit to Malaysia.
