Poland among most corrupted EU countries

No new news here
Poland is not among top nations in Europe. Unfortunately the measured value is not the GDP, but level of corruption. Poland is ranked in top three just behind Romania and Bulgaria.

According to Transparency International two out of five managers offered a bribe to public official. No wonder that Poland was ranked 28th out of 30. The situation in Bulgaria and Romania is only worse - reports

Those reports are confirmed by a poll made by CBOS. Poles think that politics and health service are the most corrupted areas of our lives. Only 4 per cent of Poles are strongly against corruption. It is not surprising as, in public view, 98 per cent of officials matters can be dealt with "an envelope"(common way to give money in Poland).
