As the United Nations itself states: “Corruption undermines the ability of governments to serve citizens by corroding the rule of law, public institutions and trust in leaders. Corruption acts as a brake on development and denies millions of people around the world the prosperity, rights, services and jobs they desperately need and deserve.
