Wherever Bulgaria came on the list it would not be as high as Turkey, corruption there is rampant. Turkey are also trying to get into the EU, no chance there because the majority of the Turkish don't wan't to join and they have to have a referundum.

Having lived and worked in Greece this doesn't surprise me at all. That's why I was defensive of Bulgaria when it joined the EU and there was so much talk about Bulgaria's corruption. Its everywhere in the world and naive not to understand this.

Here is the answer to your question tony

Greece has scored the worst ranking of all 27 EU nations in a global ranking of perceived official corruption, falling below ex-communist Bulgaria as public anger about graft soars during the country's crisis.

The index on state sector corruption, published by anti-corruption watchdog Transparency International (TI) today (5 December), also showed other struggling euro zone countries scoring poorly such as Italy which ranked below Romania.

TI's index, which this year ranks 176 countries, measures perceptions of graft rather than actual levels due to the secrecy that surrounds most corrupt dealings.

EU countries rank as follows (rank, nation, score)

1. Denmark 90
1. Finland 90
4. Sweden 88
9. Netherlands 84
12. Luxembourg 80
13. Germany 79
16. Belgium 75
17. UK 74
22. France 71
25. Austria 69
25. Ireland 69
29. Cyprus 66
30. Spain 65
32. Estonia 64
33. Portugal 63
37. Slovenia 61
41. Poland 58
45. Malta 57
46. Hungary 55
48. Lithuania 54
56. Czech Republic 49
57. Latvia 49
62. Slovakia 46
66. Romania 44
72. Italy 42
75. Bulgaria 41
94. Greece 36
Countries on their way to EU accession rank as follows: Iceland 11, Turkey 54, Croatia 62, Macedonia 69, Bosnia and Herzegovina 72, Montenegro 75, Serbia 80 and Albania 113. In the EU’s neighbourhood, Switzerland ranks 6th and Norway 7th.

Releasing its annual corruption perceptions index, Berlin-based TI urged European and other governments to try much harder to turn promises of fighting graft into action in areas such as public tenders, political party financing and tax evasion.

"
The results of the survey should be a warning signal for the EU to require more information and accountability from its member states,"
said TI's EU analyst Jana Mittermaier, adding that this should apply also to current efforts to establish European banking oversight.

Weak or inefficient judicial systems, poor public audit services and cosy ties between government and business all contribute to perceptions of corruption in some European countries, she said.

Greece took 94th place, below the poorer, newer democracies such as Bulgaria and Romania. Italy was placed 72nd, just ahead of Bulgaria at 75th but behind Romania on 66th.

In the 2011 index, Greece was 80th with Bulgaria scoring worst among the EU nations in 86th place.

Angry Greeks

Greeks have long complained about corruption but anger has soared, particularly about tax evasion among the rich, as the government has imposed wave after wave of austerity that the country's international lenders have demanded.

The EU has kept Bulgaria and Romania out of its Schengen zone, which allows passport-free travel between member states, due to concerns about corruption. A recent study showed Bulgarians gave about 150,000 bribes to civil servants every month last year, more than in 2010.

Portugal and Ireland, which like Greece have received eurozone bailouts, were placed 33 and 25 respectively in the table.

TI cautioned that the 2012 rankings did not entirely reflect relatively recent developments such as the advent of a reform-minded Italian government because some of the research shaping the index dated back more than a year.

Bulgaria: Yet Another Tip-off Filed Against Notorious Bulgarian Prosecutor

Bulgarian Prosecutor Galya Gugusheva, who failed to become one of the country's constitutional judges, faces fresh allegations, it emerged on Tuesday.

Gugusheva allegedly offered court settlements to high-scale credit card fraudsters, according to a new tip-off sent to the Bulgarian parliamentary committee on high-profile corruption.

The tip-off says that some of the fraudsters in question were active in the US.

The parliamentary committee's head, Yane Yanev, has told the Bulgarian National Radio that the tip-off has been sent to the Supreme Judicial Council and to the parliamentary legal affairs committee.

On Tuesday Gugusheva withdrew her candidacy to become a member of Bulgaria's Constitutional Court following a series of allegations of past abuse of power.

Earlier, right-wing UDF and ruling center-right GERB decided to withdraw support for Gugusheva.

Gugusheva's nomination was approved by UDF leadership and tabled by non-affiliated MPs, as the party's MPs refused to support the nomination, which led to them being dismissed.

Tuesday UDF and GERB reached an agreement for UDF to work on presenting a new candidacy, but the procedure is not expected to start before the New Year.

Gugusheva is the second failed Constitutional Court nominee by Parliament, after the fiasco with judge Veneta Markovska, whose election by Parliament was not respected by Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev, due to allegations of dealing in influence that she was not able to dispel

l have never accepted these governing statistics,because they can easeliy fudge the figures to favour themselves.
Just look at the corrupt table Turkey is at.And they expect me to believe that.That country is extremely corrupt,from local busnisses right to the top.Read the many stories on the TLF just to give you a slight idea how bad it is in Turkey.
Bulgaria should be under level of the corruption table to where Turkey is placed.

Never believe what you see if political motives are involved.Go by what you have researched and by vicitms experiences.l can tell you a lot.

l will never forgive what Turkey did to me
