Arab Spring nations slip in corruption index

Egypt has fallen in a global league table of perceived official corruption in the past year, and the Arab Spring revolutions have yet to produce serious anti-corruption action across the region, Transparency International (TI) says. In its annual Corruption Perceptions Index, released on Wednesday, the Berlin-based group said Egypt had fallen six places to 118th out of 176 countries as levels of bribery, abuse of power and secret dealings remain high in the Arab world’s most populous nation. The public-sector league table – on which the higher the ranking, the cleaner a country is – produced a mixed picture for nations swept up in last year’s unrest.
