Afghanistan seen as most corrupt in decades: Survey

Kabul, March 19: Afghans say corruption is worse now than at any time in the past nearly 30 years, including under Taliban and Soviet rule, according to a survey published today that warns of a risk to President Hamid Karzai's government.

About 60 per cent of 1,250 Afghans questioned for the survey by integrity watch Afghanistan thought his administration was more corrupt than any since the start of communist rule in the late 1970s.

The research and policy analysis group said perceptions were most vivid when it came to the recent past but the findings nonetheless reflected the beliefs of people today.

More than 60 per cent of respondents said corruption had increased their disaffection toward the state, "a figure so high that it risks undermining the legitimacy of the state and its backers in the international community," it said.

Around 93 per cent believed more than half the public services required a bribe, and more than half admitted to actually having paid a bribe, with the courts seen as the most corrupt institution.

"Corruption is endemic in Afghanistan, as it is in other post-conflict countries where the state is in the process of reconstruction that is associated with unprecedented levels of international financial aid," the group said.
