More needs to be done to tackle corruption in France, says report
MORE needs to be done in France to tackle corruption, according to a report from Transparency International.
In its annual study covering 2011 the organisation said that only 24 cases of high-level corruption have been investigated in France, far behind the number of cases looked into in Germany and the USA.
The RFI website says that businesses based in France faced more of a threat of investigation by foreign authorities than those based at home.
Transparency International hoped to see new legislation that would break the link between the Public Prosecutor and the state.
