Asia's five most corrupt countries

Post by migrant » Tue Sep 05, 2017 4:36 pm

From South Korea’s presidential scandal to Malaysia’s 1MDB fund, not many Asian countries have been able to avoid the smear of corruption. But just how pervasive is the problem across the continent?

An 18-month long survey by Transparency International reveals there is much work to be done. After talking to more than 20,000 people in 16 countries, regions and territories in Asia Pacific, the report found more than one in four people have paid a bribe when using a public service.

While that statistic looks at the entire region, the numbers for some individual countries are staggering—and suggest corruption is deeply-rooted in everyday life.

Here are the five most corrupt countries by bribery rates, according to Transparency International.

You can find corruption everywhere, it's just a matter of degree and whether or not you want to contribute to it.

From the above article:

"Defendants and police await a verdict during a corruption trial in Ho Chi Minh City's court in June 2003."

Which ones are the defendants and which ones are the police?
