Less corruption in Greece in 2017

Greece has climbed ten positions in the Transparency International’s corruption index for 2017.

This is stated in a report published by the Hellenic Police’s Internal Affairs division on Tuesday. Greece moved to position number 59 out of a list of 168 countries, it said.

The head of Transparency International Greece said that the improvement reflects improved efforts in the fight against bribes from state bodies, the private sector and the community. In 2017, there were 8.5 percent fewer reports of corruption made to the police.
