    Corruption scandals are piling up in Algeria and the Gov. won’t fight corruption

    I have paid several bribes to the police in Nairobi, Kenya for fictional traffic offences. You can pay the bribe or spend half your day at the station followed by time at the court.

    I have also paid bribes at Juba aiport, South Sudan to the military just to have access to the airplane. They charge $60 a time!

    One does not need to pay bribes in Georgia. Georgia has significantly reduced its levels of corruption over the past six years. Now Georgia is one of the least corrupt countries in the world.

    The entire U.S.A. justice system is a bribe, set up to let the rich go free while the corporations make more money off of the squalor of poverty.
    I was arrested one night after I put my disabled sister to bed in California. I had forgotten to pay a traffic ticket that hadn’t shown up till now. So after I was pulled over in the middle of the night and this creepy old man (Monterey County Sheriff) frisked me several times, grabbing my breasts under my bra. (I demanded SEVERAL times that a woman please come instead – which was ignored)
    After this I was taken to a filthy over crowded glass and ‘concrete’ cell, with no way to contact my family. The phone in the cell only worked if you somehow memorized a bail bonds-man’s phone number – while in this nightmare I was denied the right to make a phone call for at least 10 hours but that’s not all Folks. The MALE officers came up to the glass and talked openly about which female kidnap victims they would ****. I had to turn my face toward the back wall or I had to view a male inmate down the hall masturbating. When I was finally able to call for help, I was released on “BAIL.” One of the rich women in the crowded cell with me asked a guard when she could give him her CREDIT CARD to GET OUT. So long story short there is no justice in my country, The United States of America. I literally get a PTSD reaction to the cars of the Sheriff now. I reported this to the Sheriff, the ACLU, the local papers and even the Rape Crisis Center. I received no help, only intimidation and a “you deserved it attitude.” I guess because I was a young poor woman taking care of someone else in the middle of the night I did? >Nah

    Many Years ago, you had to give bribes to the customs officers in Turkey.
    or traffic police as well. but now They can’t to accept a bribe.
    I think, authors of this report
    they don’t know anything about the current times.

    I am not saying do not bribecvin Turkey, much reduced compared to the past.

    But if you compare with europe to turkey, yes we’ve still corruption in Turkey or USA or China or all Eastern countries …

  6. albert Insinger 9 December 2010 at 2:11 pm #

    Paying a bribe is one thing and in Thailand where I am at present I can understand it. Because it supliments the very low wages that government workers recieve. Yet I am from Holland and I recently had a very unpleasant experience with a Notary who was totally corrupt. Now Corrupt notaries in Holland do not get punished and it is hardly even registered. So for offical figures it doesn t exist in Holland and yet it is very present. I have so far spent 3 years persuing this corrupt Notary and about 40.000 Euro’s on lawyers and still nothing happenes in Holland.

    Are you guys coocoo? Waht about the Caribbean?
    There is a small English speaking country in the Caribbean called Dominica. There is more corruption there than soil!!!!

  8. Indira 9 December 2010 at 3:56 pm #

    Yes… I had to, just to get my driver’s license.
    But here in the Dominican Republic the government has made corruption it’s standard M.O. They even make changes to the constitution to cover it and/or simply justify it.

  9. Ayisha Sheik 9 December 2010 at 6:03 pm #

    In India, corruption is huge. I recently went with my mom to the property registration office and this was to file papers in my mother’s name for her property she inherited from her father. For this simple task, the officials there said we have to pay 8000rs or else they will not convert the name and they will create complications. This was in a simple city of Tanjore, Tamil Nadu. More than this, in Chennai, the corruption rate is more. Everyone from Traffic policeman [they charge heavily] to constables, everyone should be bribed or they will make our lives a hell. India is the most corrupted country next to Haiti and Fiji

    I was transported to this site by an article written by the BBC on corruption levels by country and region. And im stupified by the way this organization ( Transparency International ) gathers this type of info. To use hearsay and anecdote is a half assed way of truly measuring this insideous problem. To anyone reading this response, please don’t think i am against a public forum in order for people to voice their stories but for Transparency International to release a report, not a serious study, saying that north america and the E.U. are the least prone to corruption is downright laughable, irresponsible and most of all, criminal. The developed world is rife with corrupt officials, corporations and goverment intitutions. Their entire economic system rides on the principle of ” greed is good “. The ” undeveloped ” world has corruption, i don’t disagree, but at the same time we must look at the real cause for this afliction. I wonder where this people get their funding in order to produce this type of misinformation?. And what purpose does it serve?. To anyone reading this, please trust your own judgement and spring your own conclusions. The information presented in this site is terribly biased and askewed. Take it with a grain of salt.

    Maybe Canadian citizens aren’t in the habit of paying bribes to get less harsh treatment from police officers. However, the Canadian government more than makes up for the honesty of Canadian citizens. Copy and paste this into your web browser if you don’t believe me:

    The battle against corruption is far from being won in most countries of Africa. As a Zambian, my experience has been so surreal such that in this modern time, the Zambian government is failing to account for monies provided for by donors and let alone, tax payers’ monies. In Zambia, hospitals hardly have medicine, equipment, etc. The road sector is the worst corrupt entity and the country is constantly repairing roads due to unprofessional works done by unqualified contractors.

    I am an American living in the Philippines. I live in Lianga, Surigao del Sur, on the island of Mindanao. Three and a half years ago I came here to set up some businesses which I thought could help the local economy, while also providing my wife (a Filipina) a livable income. The business required that we go through a Government Agency the DENR (Department of Environment and Natural Resources), they being in charge of such things as Sawmill, Lumber Transportation, etc.

    Time after time I have been asked to pay Graft to get my documents and permits processed, they call it SOP. I have repeatedly told them that since that is considered illegal here by their laws, and since I am trying to become a Permanent Resident, there is no chance that I will be involved with something illegal.

    I have learned that certain of the people I had working for me, have indeed paid these despicable corruption payments against my wishes. Those that I discover get fired immediately, but how can you ever know if there is no receipt and only physical cash money is allowed. I can not even pay our electric bill with a check. Everything is only on a cash basis.

    I would be happy to provide a list of what I have discovered so far, or you can visit my blogsite “Barangay Saint Christine”, where much of my story is available, or you can visit with me on facebook as “Mark and Merejen Borders”. I would be happy to work with anyone to bring this corruption to the public eye.

    New Zealand is the least corrupt but I have proof of a person writing legislation for his own business plan to set up a law enforcement agency . Through his public office he then uses the resources and staff to paid for by public funds to obtain money from the public which is then bank into a private bank account controlled by the author of the legislation .

    In nearly 5 years of question this serious matter no Politian , or government authority has taken action . Either we have people being paid off at the highest level or we have high level acceptance of corruption. http://anticorruptionnz.wordpress.com/

    In Uganda, corruption is growing day by day. There is now reasons to believe corruption is more than individuals. Parliament discusses scandles involving government officials but no action on recommendations.

    Of recent, I have concluded that it is not enough for government to declare policy and or legal frameworks for fighting corruption. Such policy and legal frameworks ought to be accompanied by strong enforcement mechanisms. The fight against corruption should be a collective fight in which all stakeholders affected by it are involved. Corruption the machinery used by the rich and privileged to exploit the poor and less privileged. It is a crime committed by the minority against the majority. The only silver bullet to end corruption as a matter of fact is the poor and less privileged massively rising against the rich and privileged.

    In some instances jobseekers (especially those with limited qualifications) have themselves
    been reported to have exhibited apparent willingness to use sex to obtain a job or service.
    A number of employing officials have been suspected ad alleged, with few or non being prosecuted and charged for Sexual Harassment for having engaged in sexual corruption.

    Stamping out corruption and strengthening corporate integrity is a challenging agenda, but one with ample opportunities for engagement. This is the uphill task of our time.

    The lesson from daily analysis is clear:
    Business needs to recognize that corruption risks start with bribery and go beyond, requiring an integrated approach to corporate integrity.

    Governments need to take advantage of new generation of innovative tools and thereby put much more emphasis on regulatory capabilities, actual enforcement and international cooperation.

    Civil Society needs to become fully aware of how corruption in business is at the core of many social, development and environmental challenges, and forge much broader and more effective partnerships to support corporate integrity.

    Stakeholders -from business owners, executives and workers to auditors, investors, regulators and anti-corruption activists have to acknowledge that corporate integrity is a multi-stakeholder effort that requires collective action across sectors, borders and institutional boundaries.

    The evidence presented by the Transparency International Global Corruption Report 2009 is conclusive and troublesome: corruption is a central and growing challenge for business and society, from informal vendors in the least developed countries to multinational companies in industrialized ones, for citizens, communities and nations, all over the world.

    Kenya which was once the shinning star in Africa is today far away behind many countries in Africa due to the rampant corruption which has developed deep roots. The probabilities of positive change with the same leaders are equal to none. But a lot of causion is necessary so that those who have messed Kenya, are not replaced with similar individuals. Unlike before, there should be a background check foy any would be leader of Kenya

    Il y a 50 ans, en 1960, les quatorze colonies françaises d’Afrique noire devenaient indépendantes. Mais, indépendance ne signifie pas liberté : le général de Gaulle confie à Jacques Foccart la mise en place d’un système qui vise à garder, par tous les moyens, légaux et illégaux, le contrôle de nos anciennes colonies dont les matières premières sont vitales pour la France. Ce système va s’appeler la Françafrique. Pendant plus d’un an, Patrick Benquet a enquêté avec l’aide précieuse d’Antoine Glaser, spécialiste unanimement reconnu dans ce domaine

    One thing people do not know is that if you are corrupt it affect you. It affect you like this, when you make money through corruption it make you not to discover how to make money legally and you gradually kill your talent that is why you see some people when they come out of jail they tend to prove the worth because they had the time to think about what to do to make money legally read more at letchangetheworldnow.blogspot.com

    Russia. The Story of Sergei Magniski death- layer of Hermitage Capital Investment. The occicials and procurement officers immediately become rich with $5.4bln stolen by them under the signatures of dead layer Magnitski.
    Investigation of this matter was hold and no actions made about his death!
    Moreover russian officials thretened UN saying it was internal matter the whole story.
    This is one of many stories that happen in russia where top politicals fight with those trying to fight corruption.
    Especially police officers and procurement officers report of multiple corruption of their top rank officers and head quarters. As result they all are accused slander.

    The present form of democracy followed in many developing countries is actually hypocrisy clothed in democracy; and hence called ‘democrazy’. I would call it ‘kleptocracy’.

    The politicians and political parties to win elections need huge funding for campaigning and to buy votes. For this when the party is in power, indulge in mega corruption and siphon out government funds through contracts to private accounts and stash them in tax havens to enrich themselves. This creates a skewed society and the gap between the haves and have-nots is widening in geometric proportions.

    One sure way to eliminate this and create a level playing field for all would be by demonetizing currency and instead introducing anonymous yet secure biometric smart card based transactions linked to a money account and making all transactions transparent on the web.

    This would remove the element of secrecy shrouding underhand dealings and make everyone answerable for their acts of commission / omission. No one should be able to cheat anyone and get away with it.

    Most of the communities in the entire Indian sub-continent(such as Bengali) succumbed in ‘Culture of Poverty'(Oscar Lewis), irrespective of class or economic strata, lives in pavement or apartment. Nobody is genuinely regret ed or ashamed of the deep-rooted corruption, decaying general quality of life, worst Politico-administrative system, weak mother language, continuous consumption of common social space (mental as well as physical, both). We are becoming fathers & mothers only by self-procreation, mindlessly & blindfold(supported by some lame excuses). Simply depriving their(the children) fundamental rights of a decent, caring society, fearless & dignified living. Do not ever look for any other positive alternative behaviour(values) to perform human way of parenthood, i.e. deliberately co-parenting children those are born out of ignorance, extreme poverty. It seems that all of us are being driven only by the very animal instinct. If the Bengali people ever be able to bring that genuine freedom (from vicious cycle of ‘poverty’) in their own life/attitude, involve themselves in ‘Production of (social) Space’ (Henri Lefebvre), initiate a movement by heart, an intense attachment with the society at large is very much required – one different pathway has to create, decent & rich Politics will definitely come up. – Siddhartha Bandyopadhyay, 16/4, Girish Banerjee Lane, Howrah-711101.

    Corruption is widespread phenmenon worldwide. It foster for absence of controlling authority. A showcase of collapse of governance is cited below:-
    Right to know for Indian seems to be a distant dream. My sister-in-law’s date of appointment has been changed by the Director, Directorate of Secondary Education, Ranchi, Jharkhand. This change has snatched away more than six years of her government school teacher’s service tenure. This change has been deliberately made to harass her as it flouts her service book record entry as well as office orders of the Directorate. DARPG, NCW, President’s Secretariat Help Line and CORE Center, registered complaints could not resolve this. Competent authority is silent to the consequential directives. The Director has even ignored directives of Honorable DC Ranchi, Sri Yashwant Sinha, Honorable M.P. and letter from PMO. Three RTI applications have been sent to The Director, Directorate of Secondary Education, Jharkhand Mantralaya and DARPG on 20th October, 2011. Jharkhand Mantralaya and DARPG have forwarded the applications to the concerned officials. No reply has been given yet. On expiry of 30 days of term appeals to concerned appellate authorities would be sent. I do not know if the directorate still can evade these RTI queries. Absence of strong grievance handling system fosters these gross irregularities and rather helps growth of paramount corruption. e-governance initiative of our government has feeble impact on answer-ability, accountability. Jharkhand government portal is a showcase of such deficiencies. This issue has been exposed in news report; Hindustan Times, Ranchi on 3rd September, 2010.
    May I draw attention of Ms. Vineeta Singh, Project Director; Transparency International India; Ms Anupama Jha, executive director and Mr. Anshul Jain of TII though have tried their best to resolve this issue, but ultimately could not break silence of the competent authorities.
    The above issue has been brought to the notice of almost all the conceivable dignitories of TI & TII. I thought TI/TII can resolve this stalemate situation where a junior level of executive’s [The Director, Directorate of Secondary Education, Ranchi, Jharkhand] whims is the determinant factor to sabotage natural justice.

    Hi admin,
    Is India the most corrupted country in the world?

  38. Franck Commonsens 5 December 2012 at 3:38 pm #

    Canada: absolutely false results!
    The thing about Canada is this false image of integrity and do-gooder. The various current criminal investigations clearly demonstrate that corruption is extremely HIGH inside all levels of the government and an “ostrich” and apathetic philosophy of the general population, cloak what is really going on.
    The population is everyday rob by its “administrators” and because it is done by its officials, everyday, it has become “normality”.

    I have never had the need to give a bribe in the USA.

    I believe the government is taking small steps to fight corruption through education programs and the news.

    I feel that corruption has decreased over the past few years.

  40. Harli 17 February 2013 at 11:42 pm #

    TI said that they interviewed more than 90.000 people. This not makes sense. It makes sense when you say we frame a population from 9 million people and we select for sample 90.000 people from different age, sex, race, interest and etc. Those make sense because public want to know how do you develop a probability. And many thing you need to improve. This survey, for me, has a meaning less. When the surveyor does not provide construction of the question, measurement, response and etc. It includes population frame, sampling, sample and etc..
    I suggest that TI should provide all those information. I believe that transparency should be started from people who interested combating corruption. Thanks
