Russia falls foul in worldwide corruption rankings
Tuesday 26 October 2010 - by Will Henley
Asian financial hub Singapore has topped a new international survey as one of the least corrupt countries in the world.
Huguette Labelle, chair of Transparency International, said that the report indicated that G20 efforts to crack down on corruption should be “accelerated”, adding that there should be “more enforcement” of existing rules and laws.
She said: “It is commendable that the Group of 20 in pursuing financial reform has made strong commitments to transparency and integrity ahead of their November summit in Seoul. But the process of reform itself must be accelerated.”
“There should be nowhere to hide,” Labelle added.
In the 2010 survey, China shares 78th place with Greece. Bottom was claimed by Somalia.
