Bangladesh no longer tops global corruption index - It Slides To 3rd

Bangladesh has lost its world championship in corruption to Haiti. It
has been placed in the third position from the bottom in the
Transparency International's corruption perception index (CPI) this
year, after it stayed at the bottom of the index for five consecutive

The CPI annually ranks countries in terms of the degree of political
and institutional corruption.

Haiti, a Caribbean country, was placed at the bottom of the
Berlin-based organisation's CPI of 2006, while Guinea in Africa and
Iraq and Myanmar in Asia were jointly placed in the second place from
the bottom, according to a TI report published in Dhaka and around the

Bangladesh was placed in the third position from below, along with
African countries Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Sudan with
2 points out of 10, while Haiti bottomed with 1.8 points and Guinea,
Iraq and Myanmar got 1.9 points.

Finland, Iceland and New Zealand were on the top of the list with
9.6 points.

Bangladesh was bottom in the CPI index in 2001 with 0.4 point, in
2002 with 1.2 points, in 2003 with 1.3 points, in 2004 with 1.5 points
and in 2005 with 1.7 points.

Transparency International, however, attributed Bangladesh's
improvement in position to the poorer performance of some other

'The fact that Bangladesh no longer occupies the last place in the
table is attributable more to the poorer performance of several other
countries than to a drop in corruption levels in Bangladesh as such,'
said the TI.

Professor Muzaffer Ahmed, chairman of TIB, said that Bangladesh's
points have increased because of enhancement in the number of
institutions from where information is gathered.

'Earlier, in 2001, the TI gathered data from three organisations,
but this year it took data from six organisations. The report has been
based on the perception of business people, politicians, bureaucrats
and analysts of corruption as surveyed by different organisations,'
he said at the launching of TIB's report at a press conference in the
National Press Club.

In the case of Bangladesh, sources of data for the CPI 2006 were six
surveys conducted by five organisations: Country Policy and
Institutional Assessment 2005 by the World Bank, Country Risk Service
and Country Forecast 2006 by the Economist Intelligence Unit, Grey Area
Dynamics 2006 by the Merchant International Group, Global
Competitiveness Report of 2005 and 2006 by the World Economic Forum and
Risk Ratings 2006 by the World Markets Research Centre.

When asked whether the increase in points and improvement in
position showed that Bangladesh's corruption level was sliding
slowly, Muzaffar said, 'There is no indication that the level of
corruption has decreased in the country. As other countries'
performances are sliding, Bangladesh's position has improved.'

'There is no reason to be happy with the present situation,' he
added. 'My personal observation is that corruption in the country is
worse than ever before at the moment.'

'Among Asian countries, Bangladesh has been mentioned together
with Myanmar and Cambodia where the lack of political will to
strengthen anti-corruption institutions has perpetuated rampant
corruption, undermining efforts to improve the quality of life of the
poorest citizens,' said executive director of TIB, Iftekharuzzaman,
while launching the report.

Among the 163 countries surveyed, 71 countries scored below 3,
indicating that corruption is rampant if not worldwide, he said.

The 2006 CPI points at a strong correlation between corruption and
poverty, with the concentration of impoverished states at the bottom of
the ranking.

'Corruption traps millions in poverty,' said Transparency
International's chairperson, Huguette Labelle, in a message posted at
its website. 'Despite a decade of progress in establishing
anti-corruption laws and regulations, today's results indicate that
much remains to be done before we see meaningful improvements in the
lives of the world's poorest citizens.'

Countries with a significant worsening in perceived levels of
corruption include Brazil, Cuba, Israel, Jordan, Laos, the Seychelles,
Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia and the United States.

Countries with a significant improvement in perceived levels of
corruption include Algeria, the Czech Republic, India, Japan, Latvia,
Lebanon, Mauritius, Paraguay, Slovenia, Turkey, Turkmenistan and

In South Asia, Bhutan scored highest with 6 points, securing the
32nd position in TI's index, while India was placed in the 70th
position with 3.3 points, Sri Lanka in the 84th position with 3.1
points and Pakistan in the 142nd position with 2.2 points.

Improved corruption perception index (CPI) - Very little to take
comfort from

We wish we could take solace in the fact that Bangladesh has graduated
to the third position in order of merit in the list of corrupt nations,
according to the latest Transparency International CPI. But, as it was
pointed out, the changed index does not have any statistical
significance as the differences are marginal. Also, it does not mean
that we have become less corrupt. In fact other nations have taken our

But we should not go by what others say; we did not do so in the past,
nor should we do it now. Instead, we should depend on our own judgment
and assessment of the issue. The fact is, corruption remains the number
one problem for us, and nobody but us, who have been so grossly
affected by the acute impact of it in every sphere of our lives, can
vouch to the fact -- particularly of rampant corruption in the most
high places. We are painfully aware of the all-pervading phenomenon
that corruption has become, and more so in the last five years. Not a
single institution has remained impervious to it, including the lower

But if corruption is abhorrent, even more deserving of our condemnation
is the fact that the government has done nothing to prevent its spread.
Our criticism of the last government is that while it questioned the TI
methodology of determining the state of corruption in a country and
various data that were used to come to that conclusion, it did nothing
to stem its spread, on the contrary reverse has been the case. Lack of
accountability and lax financial discipline have helped it to grow.

And the ACC, whose idea had so much promise, has been made
dysfunctional, and some of the actions by the erstwhile government make
us wonder whether that was done deliberately to allow corruption go

Regrettably, as far as corruption is concerned we are where we were
yesterday, and will continue to be there tomorrow unless drastic
measures are taken to render it the least lucrative enterprise with the
worst punishment possible for those who indulge in it. Nothing less
than a national crusade against corruption will help us emerge from the
mire. And as our Noble laureate Prof Yunus has said, if there is one
thing for the chief advisor to do it is to fight corruption, and in
doing that if he can take one single case of corruption and make
example out of it, it would be worthwhile. That may be the start of
total elimination of corruption from Bangladesh.
