Lima, Feb. 16.
Anti-corruption measures taken by the Peruvian Government are concrete actions with a corresponding legal framework that aim to clean the State from this scourge, Prime Minister Fernando Zavala affirmed on Thursday.

In this sense, the Cabinet Chief highlighted President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski's leadership in adopting such actions. 

These include banning corrupt companies from signing contracts with the Peruvian State, as well as implementing civil death for corrupt public officials, thus excluding them from working for the State or running for office.
 
Zavala also underlined the emergency decree published by the Executive earlier this week to prevent corrupt companies from taking ill-gotten gains out of the country. 

Likewise, he noted the government works on a system to address corruption claims in the Executive Branch. 

Said initiative will reward officials or natural persons who report this kind of wrongdoings in the public administration. 

"We are taking all necessary measures to ensure the State is free from corruption," the high-ranking official assured.

"And we are also working to have measures in the private sector that guarantee we do not see these acts in Peru ever again," he pointed out.
