Ernst&Young report indicates Turkey 9th least corrupt in Europe
A 28-page report titled "Europe, Middle East, India and Africa Fraud Survey 2013" which was prepared by the Ernst & Young ranked Turkey the ninth least corrupt out of 36 countries in a survey of business leaders of 3,459 firms in those countries. The survey revealed that 96 percent of firms in Slovenia reported some form of illegal activity in regular business activities. The number was higher than Kenya, where the figure was 94 percent. Furthermore, 55 percent of Turkish business leaders surveyed said they had either offered bribes to win contracts or deliberately lied about their firm's performance. This percentage was far lower than in Greece and Slovakia, where 84 percent of businesses said they regularly paid bribes or fudged records. The figure was 73 percent in the Czech Republic, 72 percent in Portugal, 70 percent in Hungary and 65 percent in Spain.
