Political corruption

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In broad terms, political corruption is the misuse of public

(governmental) power for illegitimate, usually secret, private advantage.

All forms of government are susceptible to political corruption. Forms

of corruption vary, but the most common are patronage, bribery, extortion,

influence peddling, fraud, embezzlement, and nepotism. While corruption

often facilitates criminal enterprise such as drug trafficking, money laundering,

and criminal prostitution, it is not restricted to these organized crime activities,

and it does not always support or shield other crimes.

What constitutes corruption differs depending on the country or

jurisdiction. Certain political funding practices that are legal in one place

may be illegal in another. In some countries, police and prosecutors have

broad discretion over who to arrest and charge, and the line between

discretion and corruption can be difficult to draw, as in racial profiling. In

countries with strong interest group politics, practices that could easily

constitute corruption elsewhere are sometimes sanctified as official group

preferences.

TEXT 2 – Questions from 51 to 54

SMALL BRIBES,

BIG CHALLENGE

Extent and nature of petty

corruption in South Africa

Although grand corruption

like that associated with the arms

deal receives most media attention,

petty corruption can be as damaging

if left unchecked. According to the

ISS 2003 National Victims of Crime survey, petty corruption was the second

most prevalent crime in the country after housebreaking. Of most concern

is that many citizens do not know how to report corruption, do not believe

that doing so will change anything, and, despite good whistleblower

provisions, are afraid of the consequences if they do report.

It should be noted from the outset that many incidents of corruption

or attempted corruption were probably not reported to the survey. Some

victims may be aware of their perceived ‘complicity’ as the bribe payer

(albeit on demand, possibly accompanied with the threat of withholding a

service) and would worry that by answering the questions they might

implicate themselves. Others may not know that being asked for a bribe in

return for a service constitutes a crime, and may instead see this as a ‘normal’

transaction fee required to ensure the delivery of services. Similarly, requests

for ‘favours’ and ‘gifts’ may be overlooked as a form of corruption. These

acts typically involve the purchase of a cold drink, alcohol or a meal in

return for speeding up a service or the efficient delivery of a service. Some

members of the public may regard this as an accepted form of gratitude.

The view that it would not change anything, and the lack of knowledge

about where and how to report (which together represent two thirds of

responses) could be addressed in the short term by a sustained awareness

campaign by the public service. This should be geared towards informing

citizens of why they need to counter corruption, thus popularising a

whistleblowing culture, as well as ensuring that people know what channels

to use to report (i.e. through national hotlines).

1 A dedicated public education campaign is needed to address the lack

of awareness about what constitutes corruption and how to report it.

Consensus among the elite will not be enough to stop corrupt practices.

Ultimately broad public participation is required to promote a culture of

whistleblowing in the public and private sectors, but also to ensure that

corruption is prevented in future.
