Corruption in Serbia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Corruption levels are perceived to be high by surveyed residents of Serbia, and public trust in key institutions remains low.[1]

Dynamics[edit]

Public procurement, public administration recruitment processes, mining and rail operations are sectors with a serious problem of conflict of interest.[2] The European Commission has raised concern over Serbia's judiciary, police, health and education sectors that are particularly vulnerable to corruption.[3] Corruption is considered the most problematic factor for doing business in Serbia, followed by inefficient government bureaucracy.[4]

Anti-corruption efforts[edit]

Even though Serbia has made progress in the investigation of high-level corruption cases, the implementation of anti-corruption laws is weak.[5] According to Global Corruption Barometer 2016, 22% of Serbian citizens who had contact with public institutions included in research (traffic police, public health, educational system, courts - civil litigation, public services that issue official documents, departments responsible for social welfare), had paid bribe at least once in the previous year.[6] According to 2016 results of Corruption Perception Index of Transparency International, Serbia ranks 72nd place out of 176 countries.[7] Transparency Serbia concluded at CPI's presentation that systemic measures for preventing corruption had not implemented and repressive activities in fight against corruption, highly exploited by the media, hadn’t had court epilogue.[8]
