#Breaking: Police, Government and elected representatives in top of corrupt

Corruption can take many forms: bribery, embezzlement, money laundering, tax evasion and cronyism, to name a few. Whatever its shape, corruption always comes at someone’s expense, and it often leads to weaker institutions, less prosperity, denial of basic services, less employment and more environmental disasters.

“Fighting corruption is a global concern because corruption is found in both rich and poor countries, and evidence shows that it hurts poor people disproportionately,” the U.N. wrote on its website. “It contributes to instability, poverty and is a dominant factor driving fragile countries towards state failure.”

The U.N. lists corruption “one of the biggest impediments” to achieving its 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, which include the elimination of poverty and hunger, as well as improved education, well-being and infrastructure.
