FRANCE 24 continues its special series on corruption with a focus on the Arab world. 5 years ago, a major survey in several Arab states revealed that a whopping 90% of the population believed corruption in their country was widespread. Transparency International's corruption index consistently ranks Arab countries below the global average.
