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.
