J’ca holds firm in corruption rankings

Jamaica maintained its ranking as a country perceived to be suffering from corruption in the yearly Global Corruption Perception Index rankings released by anti-corruption body Transparency International.

The 2012 report ranked Jamaica at 86 out of 182 countries, matching the same ranking as last year and one less than 2010.

Jamaica was given a ranking of 3.3 out of a possible 10, with 10 being perceived to be least corrupt and one as most corrupt.

In 10 years, Jamaica has never scored higher than 4.0 on TI’s CPI.

The CPI ranks countries according to their perceived levels of public sector corruption.

New Zealand was the country with the highest ranking of 9.5, while Somalia ranked the lowest with one.

The report was released on December 5. (Gleaner)
