#DocuforumAVAF begins its journey in Vocational Training at the IES Joan Fuster in Sueca


The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency visits Sueca, the capital of the Ribera Baja, with the #DocuforumAVAF activity at the IES Joan Fuster.

The students of the first year of the higher cycle of Administration and Finance with the collaboration of Professor Aurora Agud have been able to learn about the objectives and functions of the AVAF, created by “Les Corts” in response to the UN mandate through the Convention of United Nations against Corruption of 2003, ratified by Spain in 2006.

The viewing of the documentary “Corruption: Harmful Organism” on Pandora Box TV, in a first session, allows them to see first-hand testimonies from informants of corruption in the public sector and the reprisals to which they were subjected.

On Thursday, March 23, the AVAF training technician, Pilar Moreno, visited the IES Joan Fuster to share the #DocuforumAVAF learning experience with the students and resolve the doubts and questions of those present.

The existing control mechanisms in the public administration, as well as the economic effects of corruption in society, together with the creation of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency have been some of the questions formulated by the students participating in the training activity.

The Valencian Antifraud Agency through #DocuforumAVAF has the opportunity to show in the classrooms of schools, institutes and universities throughout the Valencian Community the work of promoting integrity and public ethics, as well as the protection of informants of corruption and the AVAF complaints mailbox.

Milla Ibáñez from the Department of Financial Law and History of Law. Anselm Bodoque, head of the AVAF Training Service, was responsible for stimulating the debate sessions with the students.

After watching the documentary “Corruption: Harmful Organism”, the students ask questions focused on the origin and causes of corruption, the social impact and collective costs it entails, the different control bodies, and the perception of corruption in our society and in other countries around us.

Subsequently, the AVAF representative discusses with the students the issues raised in their questions and others related to the need for greater public ethics and integrity, prevention strategies and civic training, the functions of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency and public policies on fight against corruption, focusing part of the conference on the legal framework of integrity that the Valencian Community has built in recent years that allows the improvement of the democratic quality of the institutions.

Given the questions raised by the students about the protection of complainants, the Agency’s work in this regard was explained to them, and they took the opportunity to inform them of the obligations of the recently approved Law 2/2023, regulating the protection of people who report violations of regulations and the fight against corruption, which reinforce the Autonomous Law 11/2016 creating the Agency.

In the debate, the students showed interest in the guarantees of confidentiality, the investigation procedure, as well as the profile of the Agency’s staff.
