Amman, Dec. 20 (Petra) -- Ombudsman Bureau has referred a number of complaints involving suspicions of corruption to the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

The Ombudsman Bureau's Acting President, Ala'eddin Armouti, said on Saturday that the bureau referred 20 cases involving violations in delivery of public service and jobbery to the ACC as a result of the memorandum of understanding signed between the ACC, Ombudsman Bureau and the Audit Bureau.

Armouti noted referring such cases to the ACC and other oversight agencies will help detect and combat the manipulation of public funds.

The Bureau will never hesitate from referring complaints involving any suspicion of financial or administrative illegalities or corruption to the ACC, Armouti stressed.
