Corruption is widespread because the corrupt continue to get away with it. If there was no impunity there would be less corruption. Transparency International and its chapters around the world will continue to work so that the corrupt do not use their positions of power either in politics, in the courts, in business or behind the scenes to escape justice.
By standing together, we have the power to make a difference. We will pressure governments to take action. We will demand legal sanctions. We will politically and socially sanction the corrupt. Corruption must not pay and it’s time we no longer tolerate impunity for corruption.”– José Ugaz, Chair, Transparency International
