The list of public services which most often demand a bribe is noted by the police while among them 38 poorest surveyed said they had paid a bribe, which is the highest proportion of any income group.
In the survey, they asked the people about how often they had to pay a bribe, do a favor, or to give a gift, including for the judge, police, or court officials, hospital staffs, teachers, or a government official for getting some services or documents.
Jose Ugaz, Chair of Transparency International said, “Governments must do more to deliver on their anti-corruption commitments. It’s time to stop mere talks and has to start the act. Millions of people all over the world are forced to pay bribes to someone to get public services, and it is the poor people who are most vulnerable.”
The result of the survey shows that lawmakers across the region need to do much more to support whistleblowers and the government must keep up promises to eliminate corruption, including their engagements to meet the Sustainable Development Goals, the Transparency International said.
