TI-SL Advisory Board Chair Elected
In Sierra Leone’s history, corruption has led to bad governance which, in turn, has led to increased poverty and conflict. In 2000, 92.3% of respondents to the survey on National Perception and Attitudes towards Corruption in Sierra Leone considered bribery the most common corruption practice, others being embezzlement and misappropriation, abuse of power and fake contracts. Transparency International’s Global Perception Index records these trends for Sierra Leone.
The people of Sierra Leone have strong opinions about corruption in the country. The Anti Corruption Commission’s National Public Perception Survey on Corruption 2010 reports that corruption is seen as the third most serious problem in the country, after poverty and unemployment.
