En route to the International Anti-Corruption Summit to be held in London on May 12, Rachel Davies, acting Head of UK Advocacy and Research, outlines ten things that the Prime Minister should aim to achieve at the Summit.

Last night, 13 of the more cultured members of Transparency International UK staff (including me, naturally) went on a little excursion to see Richard Bean’s new play at the National Theatre, Great Britain. Fancy. But it wasn’t exactly non-work related – the production is a “grotesque satire” of the phone hacking scandal which exposed the illegal interception of phones by newspapers within the past decade.

News has broken that Rebekah Brooks has been cleared of all charges in the phone-hacking trial, and Andy Coulson was found guilty of conspiring to hack phones. This is an outcome of one of the most significant corruption scandals in recent years – but what next?

Corruption in the UK is increasing according to the world’s largest public opinion survey on corruption from Transparency International, with survey participants identifying the media as the most corrupt sector, closely followed by political parties.

As the phone hacking scandal escalates, more and more evidence is emerging highlighting undercurrents of corruption that are embedded in our media, police, and political institutions. The relationship between media ownership and the UK political establishment has come under particular scrutiny over the past few days.

This afternoon the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Paul Stephenson, has confirmed that documents supplied to the police contain evidence that journalists working for the News of the World made ‘inappropriate payments’ to police officers in exchange for information.
