MEDIA ADVISORY: Note for News and Planning Editors, Global Corruption Report 2007

The Law is not above the Law: Corruption in Judicial SystemsTransparency International to launch Global Corruption Report 2007

Transparency International’s Global Corruption Report 2007, focussing on: corruption and judicial systems, will be released on 24 May 2007.

Judicial corruption blocks access to justice, hampers economic development, erodes human rights and undermines trust in the institutions of justice, denying victims and the accused the basic human right to a fair and impartial trial, sometimes even to a trial at all.

The Report brings together notable scholars, judges and civil society activists from around the world to examine how, why and where corruption mars judicial processes, and to reflect on reforms and activism that help remedy a corruption-tainted system.
