European Commissioner: Extent of Corruption Across the EU is ‘Breathtaking’

According to a report from the European Commission, corruption costs the European Union at least 120 billion euros (about $162 billion) a year.

European Union Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem, who presented the report, wrote about corruption in the Swedish newspaper Göteborgs-Posten, saying that, “The extent of the problem is breathtaking.”

In Croatia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Romania and Greece, between 6% and 29% of respondents said they had been asked for a bribe, or had been expected to pay one, in the past 12 months.

There were also high levels of bribery in Poland (15%), Slovakia (14%) and Hungary (13%), where the most prevalent instances were in healthcare.
