Fighting corruption requires recognizing that corruption damages society and the economy, and taking the appropriate steps:

  • Pay civil servants enough that corrupt practices are not necessary and not excusable.
  • Crackdown on the ringleaders and punish to the full extent of the law.
  • Provide an amnesty for regular members of the civil service who were enmeshed in standard corrupt practices.
  • Educate, so that corruption is understood to be unacceptable.
  • Carry out institutional strengthening and create new institutions such as an ombudsman, as appropriate.
  • Protect whistleblowers
