In a recent report by the International Transparency Organization, Afghanistan, now ruled by the Taliban, has fallen to the 162nd position in the Corruption Fighting Index for 2023, with a low score of just 20 points.

In 2022, Afghanistan was ranked 150th among 180 countries with the same score.

This is in contrast to Afghanistan’s position in 2021, where it ranked 174th among 180 countries with a score of 16 points.

The International Transparency Organization reports that among the 180 countries they assessed, nearly two-thirds of them scored less than fifty points.

Meanwhile, Somalia has fallen two places compared to the previous year, earning 11 points, making it the most corrupt country in the world.

Afghanistan is now ranked alongside countries like Sudan, Myanmar, Tajikistan, Chad, Comoros, and Eritrea in the fight against corruption.

Iran has also seen a drop in its ranking to 149th place compared to 2022.

Denmark, with a score of 90 points, is considered the cleanest country in the world, followed by Finland with 87 points and New Zealand with 85 points, ranking second and third, respectively.

The organization points out in its analysis that the decrease in transparency in some countries is due to a global trend of weakening judicial systems, leading to a decrease in government officials’ accountability for corruption.

According to this organization, even in countries with high rankings in the Corruption Fighting Index, exemptions from punishment have led to an increase in corruption in some countries.

According to the report from the International Transparency Organization, countries with high scores are often involved in numerous high-profile corruption cases, leading to bribery when conducting business abroad. Furthermore, countries with the highest scores frequently fail to apprehend corrupt actors and their associates.
