The Makkah Agreement, adopted at the first Ministerial Meeting of Law Enforcement Agencies of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states, is a crucial milestone in the fight against corruption across the Islamic world. With the generous backing of Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Agreement seeks to bring together law enforcement agencies from the OIC’s 57 member states in an effort to prevent money laundering, organized crime, and other corruption crimes. The Agreement is part of a larger initiative, the Riyadh Initiative, which calls on OIC member states to take measures to reduce the number of safe havens for the corrupt. This includes establishing an international legal framework for information exchange and investigations, as well as measures to better coordinate law enforcement efforts across the Islamic world. The agreement was further supported by OIC Secretary-General Taha, who urged all OIC members to sign and ratify the Agreement. The Makkah Agreement is a powerful symbol of the commitment of OIC member states to join forces in order to fight corruption and other crimes. It is also a testament to the leadership of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who has shown a commitment to promoting good governance and fighting corruption in the Islamic world. With the Agreement now in place, OIC member states have a legal framework for cooperation, and a powerful tool for tackling the scourge of corruption. This adoption marks an important milestone in the efforts of OIC member states to combat corruption, and its implementation will no doubt lead to greater security and prosperity for all.
