More Bribe Cases in Greenland

A new Greenlandic integrity study indicates that there has been an increase in the number of bribe cases in Greenland in the 2014-2018 period, according to Sermitsiaq.

An anti-corruption integrity study back in 2012 found no indications that bribes were a problem in Greenland, but the situation appears to have changed. The number of bribe cases reported to the police has increased from 81 to 203, and other forms of corruption reports have increased from 22 to 27 during the period, the report reads.

The report says that corruption in Greenland is more related to the border between friendly favors and incapacity, and between justified and non-justified gifts. The report recommends Greenland become subject to international anti-corruption conventions and works out an anti-corruption strategy.
