Afghanistan Among Top 5 Corrupt Countries: TI

KABUL – According to Transparency International (TI), Afghanistan has remained among the top 10 corrupt countries in the world in 2019.
Afghanistan was scored 15 out of 100 in 2017, 16 in 2018 and remained in the same place in 2019, according to Transparency International report released on Thursday.
Afghanistan is ranked 176 among 180 countries indexed by Transparency International.
Yamen, Syria, South Sudan, and Somalia are ranked 177, 178, 179 and 180 respectively.
The report indicates that there has not been any progress in fighting against corruption since 2018 in Afghanistan.
“The efforts to fight corruption in Afghanistan during the last five years have shown that the campaign has to be revitalized and sustained or it stalls,” said Joy Saunders, chairperson of the board of directors for Transparency in Afghanistan.
“Afghanistan had to focus on campaign financing regulation and enforcement after 2017 since it had a parliamentary election in 2018 and a presidential election in 2019,” she added.
The United States withheld 160 million dollars aids to Afghanistan in September 2019 due to corruption.
According to TI, New Zealand and Denmark have secured the first place scoring 87 out of 100.
