Corruption is becoming prevalent all over the world. Corruption hurts economies, people, and governments.
Take it or leave it, corruption is what some religious people should call the "original sin".
This is derived from man's innate propensity to be corrupt, based on the fact that man's natural instinct to survive is essentially a selfish instinct, which often disregards fairness, equity, or equality especially when the environment is harsh, hostile, or life-threatening. And man, by his very nature, has the potential to be selfish, which is the foundation for such social evils like corruption. Regardless, corruption can be and should be eliminated as it destroys societies and humanity.
Corruption is unethical, immoral, and illegal in many societies, religions, and countries. It needs to be stopped. Private organizations, United Nations, and some governments have attempted to stop corruption or at least have tried to prevent it. They have failed, however.
This site is an attempt to expose countries and departments where corruption is taking place.

Sources in the Delhi government's anti corruption bureau (ACB) has said that the force is facing pressure from the police department for acting against its personnel. Friday, the ACB caught a Delhi Police head constable red-handed for accepting a bribe. ACB sources said that they received a complaint where a person alleged that the cop, posted in Sonia Vihar police station had threatened to implicate him in a police case. The victim told ACB officials that he had already paid Rs 10,000 as bribe. But the cop demanded an additional Rs 10,000 from him. On receiving the tip-off,a trap was laid where the cop was caught read handed. Two others who are believed to be from the same police station reportedly fled the spot. Last week, the ACB had registered a case against a woman Inspector. The police is learnt to have argued that the ACB does not have jurisdiction to arrest them citing a central government notification. The notification said that the ACB could arrest only employees of the Delhi government and the police argue that they do not come under the state's jurisdiction. ACB sources, however, claim that because the Delhi Police report to the Lieutenant-Governor, who is the head of the state, they have every right to arrest corrupt Delji police.

LOS ANGELES (AP) ? A federal grand jury indicted the police chief for the Port of Los Angeles in an alleged kickback and bribery scheme involving the development of a smartphone app that was supposed to help reduce port crime. Ronald Jerome Boyd, 57, was named in a 16-count indictment that alleged wire fraud, lying to FBI agents, tax evasion and failing to file federal corporate tax returns. Boyd was put on administrative leave and agreed to surrender to federal agents next week, said Daniel J. O'Brien, an assistant U.S. attorney in the Public Corruption and Civil Rights Section. He was indicted Thursday. Boyd became chief of Los Angeles Port Police in 2004, and oversees 204 sworn officers that police 43 miles of waterfront at the nation's busiest seaport, according to a port website. In January, he was promoted to oversee divisions that handle emergency, homeland security and information technology at the port. Boyd previously worked at Los Angeles International Airport, according to his biography. In the 1970s and '80s, he helped Ray Charles with everything from wardrobe to getting around as a "valet," according to David Brokaw, a spokesman for a foundation bearing the R&B legend's name. Charles "really took (Boyd) under his wing. They were very close," Brokaw said. Advertisement Edward Robinson, Boyd's attorney, said he looks forward to defending his client. "We're confident, let's put it this way," he said. A Port of Los Angeles official said the port and the city will fully cooperate with investigators. The charges stem from a project to develop a smartphone app, dubbed PortWatch, that was supposed to notify the public of emergencies and allow people to report crimes at the sprawling port complex. An October 2012 news release quoted Boyd as saying, "We believe that our PortWatch app is the first of its kind nationally and our hope is that it will provide for a better means of disseminating critical information to our constituents and a more meaningful and speedy response to any reported incident." The program has not been fully launched ? port spokesman Phillip Sanfield described it as "a test beta product." Beginning in 2011, the city's Harbor Department began soliciting interest from various companies that might be able to develop a smartphone application for the project. According to the indictment, Boyd and two business partners formed a Torrance-based company called BDB Digital Communications that cut a deal with one firm ? identified only as Company X ? to share revenue from the sale of a similar app called Metrowatch to other government agencies. Boyd was to receive more than 13 percent of gross revenues, the indictment said ? but the deal depended on Company X getting the contract for PortWatch. The indictment alleges that for about a year, Boyd worked on behalf of Company X, including repeatedly meeting with Company X officials to disclose confidential information, meeting with the Los Angeles mayor and city attorney, and editing the "scope of work" for the PortWatch contract so he could personally monitor development of the app. Company X got the smartphone app contract in 2012, O'Brien said. However, the indictment doesn't indicate that Boyd ever received any money from the deal. Among other things, Boyd also is charged with failing to file tax returns from 2008 to 2011 for a security business he ran called At Close Range and with evading taxes by underreporting his income from 2007 through 2011.|5|2|2015
