Ever wondered who were the most corrupt leaders in recent history? You may be surprised at the findings!

Read any article on corruption prevention, and the first thing you’ll be told is that ‘political will’, or the tone at the top, is the foundation of any successful anti-corruption effort. 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.

A nephew of former U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon pleaded guilty on Friday to U.S. charges that he took part in a scheme to bribe an official at a sovereign wealth fund in order to sell a building complex in Vietnam.

Joo Hyun “Dennis” Bahn, 39, pleaded guilty to violating a U.S. foreign corruption law and to conspiracy before U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos in Manhattan.

Bahn admitted that in 2014 and 2015, he tried to arrange a bribe to secure the sale of Hanoi’s Landmark 72 building complex, owned by Korean construction company Keangnam Enterprises Co Ltd. Bahn’s father, Ban Ki-sang, was an executive at the company.

South Africa’s parliament indicated Sunday it would this week deliberate procedures for presidential impeachment, as pressure mounts on embattled incumbent Jacob Zuma.

The move came just days after the Constitutional Court ruled that parliament had failed to hold Zuma accountable for using public money for private home upgrades.

Last month the court found the president guilty of violating his oath of office by refusing to pay back the cash and order the National Assembly to draw up procedures that could be used for his removal.

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.
