The Global Corruption Report 2007 concludes that a corrupt judiciary erodes the international community’s ability to prosecute transnational crime and inhibits access to justice and redress for human rights violations. It undermines economic growth by damaging the trust of the investment community, and impedes efforts to reduce poverty.

    How corruption infiltrates the courts 
    Judicial corruption usually falls into two categories: political interference in the judicial process by the legislative or executive branch, and bribery.

    The importance of an independent judiciary cannot be overemphasised. Everyone loses when justice is corrupted, particularly the poor, who are forced to pay bribes they cannot afford.

    Transparency International’s latest global survey of attitudes towards corruption reveals that in more than 25 countries, at least one in 10 households had to pay a bribe to get access to justice.

    Corruption in the judiciary includes any inappropriate influence on the impartiality of judicial proceedings and judgements and can extend to the bribing of judges for favourable decisions, or no decision at all.

    Judicial corruption includes:
  • the misuse of judicial funds and power (ie. nepotism or manipulation of contracts for court construction and equipment)
  • biased case allocation and bias in other pre-trial procedures (ie. court clerks bribed to "lose" files and evidence)
  • influence of any trial or court settlement, and the enforcement - or not - of court decisions and sentences

    Bribery, the other dark thread of judicial corruption, can occur throughout the fabric of the judicial process.

    As 32 country reports in the Global Corruption Report demonstrate, corruption by different actors has a distinct effect on the judicial system and contributes to its deterioration and the end of public trust.

    Judges may accept bribes to:
  • delay or accelerate cases
  • accept or deny appeals
  • influence other judges or simply to decide a case in a certain way

    Court officials may seek bribes for services that should be free.

    Lawyers may charge additional “fees” to expedite or delay cases, or to direct clients to judges known to take bribes. Factors affecting the vulnerability to bribery of judges and other court personnel include:
  • poor salaries
  • insecure working conditions (including unfair promotion and transfer processes)
  • a lack of continuous training

            Integrity punished



            For judges who refuse to be compromised, political retaliation can be swift and harsh. Unfair or ineffective procedures to discipline and remove corrupt judges can end up being used instead for the removal of independent judges.

            Failure to appoint judicial officials on merit can lead to the selection of a pliant, corruptible judiciary. “Problematic” judges can be reassigned or have sensitive cases transferred to more pliable judges.

            Interference from politicians or civil servants can also buy “legal” cover for embezzlement, nepotism, cronyism and illegal political decisions. Such interference can be as blatant as physical threats and intimidation, and as subtle as the manipulation of judicial appointments, salaries and conditions of service.

              A world of bribery: Barometer results on the judiciary
               

              Transparency International’s (TI) Global Corruption Barometer 2006, released in December 2006, explores how corruption affects the lives of citizens, by assessing both the form and extent of corruption, and which sectors of society they perceive as the most corrupt.

              In 2006, the legal system/judiciary was identified as the most corrupt sectors and the third most common recipient of bribes. Worldwide, 8 percent of Barometer respondents who had contact with the legal system/judiciary paid a bribe.

              See Figure 1 below:



              (to see figure 1 in original size click here and go to page 315)

              The experience of bribery was particularly high in Bolivia, Cameroon, Gabon, India, Mexico, Morocco, Pakistan and Paraguay – where more than one in three court users admitted to paying a bribe.

              The Barometer also broke this down by region to better assess trends. In Africa and Latin America, about one in 5 people paid a bribe, compared to 15 percent in Newly Independent States and the Asia Pacific, 9 percent in South East Europe, 2 percent in North America and 1 percent in the European Union and other Western European countries.

              See Table 1 below:



              (to see Table 1 in original size click here and go to page 11)

              Respondents from 34 countries polled for the Barometer identified judges as the actors they most needed to bribe to obtain a fair judgement. Judges were followed by lawyers, police and prosecutors.

              * The Global Corruption Barometer 2006 reflects the findings of a survey of 59,661 people in 62 low, middle and high-income countries, carried out on behalf of TI by Gallup International, as part of its Voice of the People Survey, between July and September 2006.

                OPENING STATEMENT
                HUGUETTE LABELLE
                Chair, Transparency International
                On release of the
                Global Corruption Report 2007
                London, 24 May 2007
                As prepared for delivery
                 
                 
                Introduction
                 
                There may be nothing more fundamental to human security and social stability than
                the rule of law. And very few things are as frightening as a justice system built on
                greed and political expediency rather than fairness and objectivity.
                 
                We have a fundamental right to expect that the court will be the final arbiter of right
                and wrong. We should be able to take for granted that if we are accused of a crime or
                involved in a dispute, we will receive a fair and objective trial.
                 
                But what if the court’s decision is for sale? What if a bribe can tip the scales of justice
                in favour of one party, or slam the door of the courthouse in the face of those too poor
                to pay?
                 
                Justice with a price tag is no justice at all. Real justice is priceless.
                 
                Corrupt courts deny victims and the accused the basic human right to a fair and
                impartial trial, sometimes even to a trial at all. Those who cannot or will not pay are
                locked out. Legal instruments such as contracts - the fabric of business and commerce
                – are meaningless. Criminals go unpunished, destroying effective governance and
                democratic participation. Trade, investment and economic growth are diminished.
                Today's Global Corruption Report 2007 shows that bribery and political interference
                can occur at every point in the judicial process.
                 
                It is tempting to simply point an accusing finger at judges. The influence of a corrupt
                judge can be huge. They may accept bribes or submit to political pressure to delay or
                accelerate cases, accept or deny appeals, influence other judges or simply to decide a
                case a certain way. They may issue biased verdicts or even participate in outright theft
                of funds from judicial budgets.
                 
                But judicial corruption can extend to all players in the game. Court officials may seek
                bribes for services that should be free; lawyers may charge additional ‘fees’ to
                expedite or delay cases, direct clients to judges known to take bribes, collude with
                judges to lose a case, or even act as intermediaries for bribe-paying. Clerks may
                purposely lose certain files. Prosecutors may drop certain cases for a price.
                 
                In the United Kingdom, judges are seldom the target of allegations of corruption, but
                law enforcement agencies frequently stand accused. In France, close links between
                prosecutors and the executive leaves ample room for political interference,
                particularly in the investigation of major corruption scandals. In Venezuela, studies
                show that tampering with evidence by prosecutors for material gain is common
                practice, casting doubt on any decisions the courts might reach.
                 
                Political interference in the judicial process can skew the system in favour of the
                government or other powerful parties at the expense of the rule of law. In the United
                States, for example, the Attorney General dismissed eight federal prosecutors
                perceived to be too liberal, reputedly to make appointments more in line with the
                government’s political views. Interference from politicians or civil servants can buy
                “legal” cover for embezzlement, nepotism, cronyism and illegal political decisions.
                 
                The Report finds that after several decades of reform efforts, judges and courts around
                the world continue to face pressure to rule in favour of powerful political or economic
                interests.
                 
                Where does judicial corruption occur?
                 
                Judicial corruption is pervasive in many parts of the world. According to a recent
                Transparency International survey, one in five citizens across Africa and Latin
                America who had contact with the judiciary reported paying a bribe. Transparency
                International Bangladesh found that two out of three individuals who used the lower
                courts in 2004 paid a bribe, and that the typical payment was an astounding 25 per
                cent of the average yearly income.
                 
                But judicial corruption is not just a phenomenon of poor countries. A 2004 poll in the
                United States showed that a full 70 percent of respondents believed that judicial
                campaign contributions have some influence on judges’ decisions.
                 
                Solutions
                 
                The Global Corruption Report 2007 brings together the testimony of dozens of
                organisations and individuals who have dedicated their skills and efforts to ridding
                justice institutions of corruption. Many are also human rights experts, because judicial
                corruption and denial of human rights are intimately linked.
                 
                Together they show the profound impact of judicial corruption, its mechanisms and its
                costs. But equally important, they offer detailed recommendations for strengthening
                judicial integrity, independence and accountability. These are the concepts that
                underlie the entire Report. When they are absent, the courts are vulnerable to abuse
                and manipulation.
                 
                I would like to touch on just a few of the Report’s recommendations, many of which
                are captured in the press release you have received.
                 
                First, judicial and prosecutorial appointments, case assignments and removals must be
                transparent, independent of the executive and legislative branches, and merit-based.
                Sufficient salaries will help strengthen the prestige of the profession. Ensuring the
                physical safety of judges and court staff, and providing sufficient resources for their
                work, are also important elements that contribute to judicial integrity and
                independence.
                 
                Accountability can be strengthened by more effective mechanisms for detecting
                corruption in the judiciary, because the threat of discovery is a strong disincentive to
                corrupt behaviour. These include limiting judicial immunity, introducing rigorous
                disciplinary rules for investigating complaints, and defining clear rights for judges in
                such disciplinary proceedings, based on a code of judicial conduct.
                 
                Journalists must be free to monitor and comment on legal proceedings, reporting
                reliable information on laws, proposed changes in legislation, court procedures and
                judgements to the public.
                 
                Civil society has a vital oversight role. Citizens, journalists, legal associations and
                civil society can all question, monitor and comment on how judges are selected, how
                they are disciplined, how courts handle their caseloads and how judges arrive at their
                decisions. It can scrutinise the political pressure brought to bear on the judicial system
                and both hold it to account and bolster its independence.
                 
                TI’s work
                 
                Transparency International is active in monitoring and awareness-raising activities. TI
                Ecuador has monitored Supreme Court appointments, TI Argentina has been active in
                pushing for asset declarations for Supreme Court justices and TI Nicaragua has
                carried out diagnostic research of corruption in the judiciary.
                 
                In Ghana, our national chapter has promoted civil society efforts to monitor courts,
                including the publication of a manual on judicial monitoring. And TI’s Cambodia
                chapter, the Centre for Social Development, has carried out its Court Watch Project,
                monitoring thousands of cases over the last three years.
                 
                Across Eastern Europe and Central Asia, chapters are operating Advocacy and Legal
                Advice Centres, assisting the victims of corruption, many of whom are specifically
                victims of judicial corruption. They have helped thousands of citizens pursue their
                cases and have harvested statistical data that form the basis for many of the
                recommendations you see today.
                 
                Conclusion
                 
                No law can be effective without an independent, accountable and effective judiciary
                to enforce it. One that has the confidence of all citizens that they are being treated
                justly. Above all, judicial systems must be made more transparent. Sunshine is the
                greatest driver of accountability. It is the most effective way to ensure that judicial
                integrity, independence and accountability tip the scales of justice back into balance.
