Transparency Society and Combating Corruption

On 4 November 2010, the Bahrain Transparency Society called for

the establishment of an independent financial and administrative authority in order to combat corruption in accordance with UN conventions. Sharaf Al Mousawi from the Society said that Bahrain’s corruption ranking is declining since 2002. He added that “in 2009 we were ranked 46 and in 2010 we are ranked 48. This is a negative indication for Bahrain, which enjoys good standards on many levels”. The President of the Bahrain Transparency Society Abdulnabi Al Ekri stressed the importance of establishing an international alliance to combat corruption, as well as the need for public support to combat corruption across continents.. He also proposed the establishment of an international court to deal with corruption cases.
