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.

CAC was formed by Law on the Anti-corruption Commission Law (Law 8/2009).
