El RU desciende en el índice de corrupción global en medio de escándalos
January 31, 2023 - El RU descendió siete lugares en la clasificación de corrupción global – el mayor descenso entre las principales economías mundiales – tras una serie de escándalos políticos y sobre gasto público.
Britain fell seven places to 18th on Transparency International’s corruption perceptions index, representing the biggest fall among the G7 countries.
The closely watched index was published two days after Rishi Sunak sacked the Conservative party chair, Nadhim Zahawi, after revelations over his tax affairs.
The index grades a country on a scale of zero to 100, the latter being perceived as least corrupt. The UK scored 73, sliding from 78 a year earlier.
Qatar, which faced criticism over its treatment of workers in the run-up to the World Cup, dropped nine spots to 40th place. Denmark, Finland and New Zealand remained at the top of the list, while Somalia, Syria and South Sudan were at the bottom.
