Ten Percent of Croats Bribe the Public Sector

Total Croatia News

The global barometer of corruption published by Transparency International showed 10 percent of Croatian citizens have bribed the public sector in the last year in order to have access to their rights

Every second citizen sees corruption as one of the largest problems in Croatia, 57 percent feel the efforts of the executive government are not enough to fight corruption, Index.hr reported on November 17, 2016.

Less than 40 percent feel the Croatian society bolsters those who report irregularities.

In Croatia the study was undertaken on 1.503 people to gain insight into the perception of corruption by citizens.

The results were commented by members of Transparency International Croatia who feel corruption must be fought in principle, not due to outside incitement.

“The fight for a transparent society is based on true will of political participants and power holders to make positive social values such as honesty, responsibility and efficiency desirable behaviour. Every individual or irregularity denunciator must be strengthened and protected to uncover omissions and make this society a desirable place to live, invest and advance as a whole. Croatia must fight corruption through principle and strength, not exclusively incitement of outer and higher interests brought on by global trends. It is a strategic decision by a society for corruptive behaviour to be prevented by installing system tools in public authority, all corruptive irregularities sanctioned and irresponsible individuals punished and disabled from public activity. Some of the tools include regulating lobbying and protecting denunciators,” said Davorka Budimir, President of Transparency International Croatia.
