Transparency International tells David Cameron that UK is also “fantastically corrupt”

Transparency International, the world renowned watchdog against corruption accross the flobe has recated to this afternoon’s snide remark by British Prime Minister, David Cameron where he told Her Majesty The Queen that Nigeria and Afganistan were two of the most fantastically corrupt nations of the world.

The unguarded statement which has drew ire from many Nigerians has been countered by TI this evening.

According to the body, UK is also corrupt for being a haven for proceeds of corruption.

Responding to the recent comments by David Cameron, Cobus de Swardt, Managing Director of Transparency International said:

“There is no doubt that historically, Nigeria and Afghanistan have had very high levels of corruption, and that continues to this day.  But the leaders of those countries have sent strong signals that they want things to change, and the London Anti-Corruption Summit creates an opportunity for all the countries present to sign up to a new era.  This affects the UK as much as other countries: we should not forget that by providing a safe haven for corrupt assets, the UK and its Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies are a big part of the world’s corruption problem.”
