Romania named most corrupt country in EU

romaniantimes.at

Romania is the European Unionís most corrupt country, anti-corruption watchdog Transparency International said today (Tues) as it unveiled its 2009 Corruption Perceptions Index today (Tue).

The organisation said policy decisions since the start of negotiations for EU accession had undermined the countryís political institutions and contributed to the perception that the risk of corruption in the country had increased.

"Being in the EU ironically appears to reduce pressure for anti-corruption reforms. As a consequence, Romania is facing a degradation of its public integrity climate, marked by the lack of strategic coordination of legislative and institutional anti-corruption measures," it said.

Romania came 71st in the groupís list of 180 countries and was seen as more corrupt than Bulgaria, Macedonia and Greece as well as Namibia, ranked 56th, Cape Verde, ranked 46th and Botswana ranked 37th.

New Zeeland, Denmark and Singapore were seen as having the lowest levels of corruption.
