Rome, January 25 - Italy's corruption levels,
estimated to be on par with Bosnia, are an embarrassment,
according to comments made on Friday in an official speech by
Ernesto Lupo, chief president of the Court of Cassation.
Lupo, who was presenting an official report on the state of
the Italian Justice system, was referring to a recent
Transparency International report on international corruption
levels released in December.
He called the status awarded to Italy "mortifying", adding
that "many non-European nations, even third world ones" had
overtaken the eurozone's third largest economy in terms of lower
corruption levels.
Italy slid three notches to 72nd place in Transparency
International's 2012 Corruption Perception Index released in
December.
On a 100-point scale, the country scored 42, well behind
countries such as Namibia and Rwanda, according to the
Berlin-based NGO, which measured perceived levels of
public-sector corruption in 176 countries and territories around
the world.
Greece, which fell to 94th place, and Italy were seen as
having suffered from increased corruption amid the global
economic crisis.
