83% feel corruption is 'widespread' - 29% say corruption affects their daily life

Some 83 per cent of the Maltese agree that corruption is widespread, according to an EU survey published today. 

The report says in the section on Malta that the country had made  progress in the  prevention of corruption, including reforms aiming at greater transparency. However, certain issues still need to be addressed.

The European Commission suggests that Malta reviews the financing of political parties, which remains largely unregulated.

Coordination among the institutions investigating corruption should also be improved to ensure the effective collection of evidence.

The Commission said more efforts should be made to improve the transparency of judicial appointments, and of decision-making in environmental planning.

The report found that more than three quarters of European citizens, and 83 per cent of the Maltese, agree that corruption is widespread in their home country.

53% of Maltese citizens say corruption is particularly widespread among officials issuing building permits.

Approximately one in four Europeans and 29 percent of the Maltese consider that they are affected by corruption in their everyday lives.
