Corruption Holding Peru Back from Being a Developed Country – Comptroller General : Peruvian Times

Corruption Holding Peru Back from Being a Developed Country – Comptroller General : Peruvian Times | Peru | Scoop.it
Peru’s red-hot economic growth might not be enough to lift the country out of its underdevelopment status, as corruption is draining it of the economic gains, Comptroller General Fuad Khoury said. “The economic losses from corruption are stopping development,” said Khoury, according to state news agency Andina. “They are so grave that we could remain in the condition of an emerging country or even underdeveloped for the rest of the century.” Khoury, who was speaking at an international anti-corruption conference, said the annual losses from corruption could have been used to build hospitals, roads and other basic services that the Andean country is lacking. Corruption, which is widespread in Peru, reached a pinnacle in the 1990s during the administration of Alberto Fujimori. Transparency International has ranked the Fujimori administration as one of the most corrupt in the 20th century. Fujimori and his shadowy spy chief, Vladimiro Montesinos, set up a network of corruption by bribing opposition politicians, judges and media owners, and blackmailing where bribes were refused. Fujimori is believed to have stolen about $600 million from the Peruvian state during his 10 year term, which was also marred by human rights crimes that have landed him in prison. More recently, politicians from a variety of different parties have been charged with corruption.
