Corruption and Economic Crime

Corruption has devastating results to both individuals and the society. It impacts people’s lives in many different ways. In terrible cases, corruption costs lives, in other cases; it costs their liberty, wealth and health. Corruption thrives where temptation coexists with permissiveness. Where institutional checks and balances on power are missing, where decision making remains obscure, where civil society is thin on the ground, where great inequalities in the distribution of wealth condemn people to live in poverty.
