Amnesty Chief: Sustainable Development Goals won’t be achieved unless we tackle corruption

Amnesty International Secretary General Salil Shetty addressed the 2017 One Young World Summit in Bogotá this week. Shetty presented how the world’s largest grassroots human rights organisation works to confront the abuse of power.

He gave a key note speech highlighting that without tackling corruption the UN’s flagship ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ will not be achieved.

Addressing the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar as the worst example of a “toxic mix” of corruption, Shetty highlighted that, despite attention on Aung San Suu Kyi, the commander in chief of Myanmar, Min Aung Hlaing “holds the strings of power”.
