CAIRO – 29 October 2017: The Administrative Prosecution Authority presented in its annual report on Sunday a study of some reasons bribery has become a widespread issue in Egypt and of effective ways to eliminate it.

Counselor Faryal Qutb, head of the committee, which prepared the report, revealed five reasons behind bribery:

1. Poor moral and religious education and the corruption of concepts that led to the misappropriation of public money.

2. Lack of real supervision and follow up to the employees.

3. Delays in the adjudication of criminal and disciplinary liability for bribery crimes in a manner that does not achieve public and private deterrence.

4. Poor salaries of employees in general.

5. Intensification of services received and accomplished by a limited number of employees.

The report included five suggestions to eliminate bribery prepared by Counselor Saad Khalel, a member of the technical office, including:

1. Increasing the minimum salary of employees to ensure a decent living. The state has made great strides in this direction.

2. Activating internal control systems and supervisory responsibility.

3. Separating applications received for service performance and work to be directly dealing with the public only when necessary.

4. Increasing penalties for such crimes to reach dismissal or deprivation of pension.

5. Choosing safe places to keep deposits, all while ensuring the necessary security and warning devices.
