Transparency International: Libya one of five most corrupted countries worldwide
The Transparency International Organization placed Libya in the 170th position out of 176 countries on the list of most corrupted countries in the world, named Corruption Perception Index 2016.
The index that was published by Transparency International on Wednesday showed that Libya has achieved only 14% in the report, which usually depends on the percentage ration for each country to be placed on the most and least corruption list.
The report also showed that Yemen, Syria, Iraq, South Sudan, Somalia, and North Korea were below Libya on the list.
After the overthrow of the long-time dictator Moamar Gaddafi, Libya has plunged into chaos and unrest with many governments and armed groups across the country vying for power leading to economic and social dilemmas.
