Corruption in Mauritius

Corruption in Mauritius is a widespread and growing problem. The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) investigates offenses and can confiscate the proceeds of corruption and money laundering.[1]

Corruption levels

According to Transparency International, which measure the perceived level of public sector corruption and publish the annual Corruption Perception Index (CPI), in 2012, Mauritius scored 57 and is ranked 43rd (of 176) and 3rd in Africa among the least corrupted countries.[2] The CPI rates countries from 0 ("highly corrupt") to 100 ("highly clean"), reflecting perceived levels of corruption.
