Corruption survey: Somalia is the worst
« on: October 27, 2010, 08:49:52 PM »
(CNN) -- Denmark, New Zealand and Singapore are seen as having the least corruption in the world, according to a just-published global survey.

Somalia is viewed as the most corrupt country.

The Corruption Perception Index (CPI) is published annually by Transparency International, a corruption monitoring organization based in Berlin, Germany.

"The surveys and assessments used to compile the index include questions relating to bribery of public officials, kickbacks in public procurement, embezzlement of public funds and questions that probe the strength and effectiveness of public sector anti-corruption efforts," said a release accompanying the 2010 CPI.

Countries with the highest scores on the index are viewed as having the least corruption; countries with the lowest scores, the most.

Denmark, New Zealand and Singapore each scored 9.3 out of a possible 10.

Rounding out the 10 highest scores: Finland and Sweden, 9.2; Canada, 8.9; Netherlands, 8.8; Australia and Switzerland, 8.7; and Norway, 8.6.

Japan was 17th on the list with a score of 7.8; the United Kingdom 20th (7.6); and the United States 22nd (7.1).

At the bottom of the 178 countries Somalia scored 1.1, just below Afghanistan and Myanmar (1.4) and Iraq (1.5).

Among emerging economic powerhouses, Brazil was 69th on the list with a score of 3.7; China 78th (3.5); and India 87th (3.3).

Overall, Transparency International says of the survey: "These results indicate a serious corruption problem.

"With governments committing huge sums to tackle the world's most pressing problems, from the instability of financial markets to climate change and poverty, corruption remains an obstacle to achieving much needed progress."

In its 2010 Corruption Perception Index (CPI), TI said the Philippines was ranked 134th with a score of 2.4, better than its 139th ranking in 2009.

In 2008, the Philippines was ranked 141st with a score of 2.3.

Despite the improvement in overall ranking, the Philippines is still considered as "highly corrupt" country in the world along with Kenya, Laos, Papua New Guinea, Russia, Republic of Congo, Uganda, Timor Leste, Lebanon, Solomon Islands, Mali, Mongolia, Niger, Libya, Iran, Nepal, Yemen, Cambodia, Venezuela, Honduras, Syria, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Benin, Gabon, Indonesia, Kosovo, Kazakhatan, Modova, among others.

The Philippines also continued to lag behind most of its neighoring countries in Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia, 56th; Thailand, 78th; Indonesia, 110th and Vietnam, 116th.

Denmark, New Zealand and Singapore tie for first place with scores of 9.3.

The 2010 CPI measures the degree to which public sector corruption is perceived to exist in 178 countries around the world. It scores countries on a scale from 10 (very clean) to 0 (highly corrupt).

The 2010 results were drawn from 13 surveys and assessments published between January 2009 and September 2010.

This year’s index ranks 178 countries by their perceived levels of public sector corruption, as determined by expert assessments and opinion surveys. All sources measure the overall extent of corruption (frequency and/or size of bribes) in the public and political sectors.

The CPI helps to highlight the propensity of domestic corruption and its damaging influence.

TI defines corruption as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain.

“These results signal that significantly greater efforts must go into strengthening governance across the globe. With the livelihoods of so many at stake, governments’ commitments to anti-corruption, transparency and accountability must speak through their actions. Good governance is an essential part of the solution to the global policy challenges governments face today,” Huguette Labelle, chair of TI said.

Labelle said allowing corruption to continue was unacceptable; too many poor and vulnerable people continued to suffer its consequences around the world.

"We need to see more enforcement of existing rules and laws. There should be nowhere to hide for the corrupt or their money,” Labelle said.

To fully address these challenges, TI said governments need to integrate anti-corruption measures in all spheres, from the responses to the financial crisis and climate change to commitments by the international community to eradicate poverty.

The report said unstable governments, often with a legacy of conflict, continued to dominate the bottom rungs of the CPI.

Afghanistan and Myanmar share second to last place with a score of 1.4, with Somalia coming in last with a score of 1.1.

“The results of this year’s CPI show again that corruption is a global problem that must be addressed in global policy reforms," Labelle said.

TI said the 2010 CPI covered two countries fewer than last year’s edition.

The slight change resulted from individual sources adjusting the range of countries they assess. These adjustments in coverage made it possible to include Kosovo for the first time, but led to the exclusion of Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname, for which only two sources of information were available this year.

Angara hopes to solidify fight versus corruption in Southeast Asian region

MANILA, Oct 1 (PNA) -– Senator Edgardo Angara is hoping that the fight against corruption in the Southeast Asian region will be strengthened with the hosting of the Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (GOPAC) and the regional meeting of the Southeast Asian Parliamentarians Against Corruption (SEAPAC) at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza.

Members of Parliament (MPs) and experts from thirteen countries gathered beginning on Thursday to affirm their commitment to the global fight against corruption during the two-day conference aims to equip lawmakers with tools to implement the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC).

According to Senator Edgardo Angara, founding President of SEAPAC and the only Asian representative to GOPAC’s Executive Board, “the two-day conference will help strengthen the region’s fight against corruption.”

“The fight against corruption is a continuous struggle and is not limited by borders or cultures. Each nation represented here must help in formulating an international cooperative strategy to aid us in this fight,” Angara added.

Angara also said the gathering will show the world that the Philippines joins the international community in committing to combat corruption and to promote good governance.

Aside from Angara, members of the Philippine Senate were among the 36 parliamentarians who attended the conference and they are senators Loren Legarda, Franklin Drilon, Juan Miguel Zubiri and Francis Pangilinan.

Department of Justice Secretary Leila de Lima delivered keynote speech where she stressed the commitment of the new administration of President Benigno Aquino to eradicate graft and corruption as promised by the President during the election campaign period.

Together with leaders of multilateral institutions and members of civil society, the series of meetings focus on formulating strategies in combating corruption, promoting transparency and upholding public accountability and good governance among the organization’s member countries – with parliaments playing a key role.

Among the expected results of the conference is the ratification of all member countries of the UNCAC, which the Philippines ratified in 2006.

“We will assess the performance of every member country in their fight against corruption, their key strengths and weaknesses, as against their most recent anti-corruption initiative,” Angara added, referring to a Parliamentarians Toolkit developed by the GOPAC Global Task Force of parliamentarians, GOPAC and the Oslo office of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), that brings together GOPAC policy positions and the UNCAC.

This Toolkit provides a reporting framework that can be adapted to regional and national circumstances for parliamentarians to assess their own roles in preventing corruption through legislation, oversight and representation.

It is also intended to facilitate the identification of strengths and weaknesses as well as areas for technical assistance and parliamentary strengthening in corruption prevention.

Angara led the passage of major anti-corruption laws including the Government E-Procurement Law and creation of the Office of the Ombudsman. He continues to push for the Political Party and Campaign Finance Reform bill which will transform political parties into public institutions and maintain transparency in their activities.

The event was made possible through the support of the Philippine Senate under the leadership of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile, the Asia Foundation, the United Nation’s Development Program (UNDP) in cooperation with the Civil Service Commission of the Philippines, and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES).
