But what if a country’s leader, whose ethics and integrity should be beyond question, isn’t as principled as they should be? True to the old adage that ‘absolute power corrupts absolutely’, we have compiled a list of the ten most corrupt world leaders of recent history.

Yet more problems for Brazil's politicians. Just how deep does the issue of alleged #bribery and #corruption go?
Brazil’s President Michel Temer faced calls for his impeachment Wednesday (May 17) after a report that he had been recorded discussing payments of hush money to a corrupt politician.

Temer immediately denied the report in O Globo newspaper.

According to the report, which could not be immediately verified, an executive from the meatpacking giant JBS, Joesley Batista, met Temer on March 7.

During the meeting, the report said, Batista recorded himself telling Temer that he was paying money to buy the silence of disgraced ex-speaker of the lower house Eduardo Cunha.

Australian police have smashed a massive fraud syndicate and seized planes, guns, and luxury cars, with a top-ranking tax official and his son embroiled in the scam.

Nine people were held during raids across NSW on Wednesday, accused of conspiracy to defraud the government of A$165 million in one of the biggest ever white collar crimes in Australia.

Australian Tax Office deputy commissioner Michael Cranston was charged with abuse of power and faces five years in jail, while his high-flying son Adam was allegedly one the masterminds of the elaborate scheme.

The mayor of Minokamo, Gifu Prefecture, Hiroto Fujii, who is appealing a high court conviction for bribery, secured a third term Sunday because he was the only person to file for the May 21 election by the deadline.

Fujii was arrested over bribe charges in 2014.

The Nagoya District Court acquitted him, but the high court in November found him guilty of receiving ¥300,000 in bribes and handed down a suspended sentence. He appealed.

“The incident is absolutely groundless,” Fujii told his supporters. “Since I don’t have any guilty feelings, I will continue to do the mayor’s job at full strength,” he added.

The UK is urgently drawing up new laws that will enable it to continue imposing sanctions on foreign countries after Brexit, the BBC has learned.

Ministers began consulting on the plans last week after officials realised most of the powers to apply sanctions will disappear when the UK leaves the EU.

The government hopes the move will allow it to continue to adopt sanctions alongside other members of the bloc.

EU law is mostly used now for a travel ban, asset freeze or trade embargo.

The decision by #UEFA to include new criteria to protect and preserve human rights and tackle corruption in the bidding requirements for the 2024 European Championships is an essential step to preventing abuse and #corruption in connection with the event, the Sport and Rights Alliance (SRA) said today (2 May 2017).

The finals will be held in either Germany or Turkey, the two countries that submitted their interest by the 3 March deadline. Both national federations must now produce a bid dossier by April 2018. UEFA, European football’s governing body, will choose the winner the following September.

A former Guinea government minister accused of laundering $8.5 million in bribes he took in exchange for helping a Chinese conglomerate secure mining rights told jurors in Manhattan federal court on Tuesday that the money was a personal loan.

Mahmoud Thiam, taking the stand near the end of a week-long trial, said Chinese tycoon Sam Pa was a friend who lent him the money to help him take care of his family in New York while he moved to his native Guinea to serve as minister of mines in 2009.

He denied prosecutors’ allegations that he was lying to conceal bribes, violating money-laundering laws.
