The Comissão Anti-Corrupção (CAC) is tasked with rooting out and eradicating corruption. Corruption destroys the very foundation of society, and does not distinguish between small or large, rich or poor nations. Corruption wrecks our children’s future. It is an obstacle to the progress of the young; and it hastens the death of the elderly. Corruption also hinders the rule of law; and threatens democracy. CAC was formed by Law on the Anti-corruption Commission Law (Law 8/2009).
