Right after Transparency International released a report showing Kuwait is even more corrupt than last year an anti-corruption chief has been appointed for the very first time. This move has been long-awaited and I really hope the anti-corruption chief doesn’t get bribed, else we’re back to square one.
Anti-corruption penalties can go up to 7 years in prison, which I think should be at least double that number. Penalties include manipulation of public tenders and auctions, counterfeiting, bribery and forgery. Here’s to hoping seeing Kuwait on the top 20 least corrupt countries on TI next year.[Source]
