Ms. Annika Wythes, the Regional Anti-Corruption Adviser for Southeast Asia and the Pacific in the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Regional Office for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, made a lecture on the theme from an international viewpoint.

Each participating country made a presentation regarding the systems and practices in each country aimed toward the elimination of undue influence in the criminal justice system. Through the presentations, challenges and best practices were shared among the participants. The presentations were very useful to understand systems and the current situation in each country.
