Parliamentary questions
16 February 2012
P-001906/2012
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Saïd El Khadraoui (S&D)

 Subject: Corruption in Greece
 Answer(s) 

Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index for 2007 had Greece in an unenviable 56th place. At the same level as Namibia and Jordan.

This was before the financial crisis broke out.

Today, five years later, the Troika names corruption, in particular tax and social security fraud, as one of the biggest banes of the Greek economy.

Was the Commission aware of Greece’s ranking in 2007? If so, did the Commission take or recommend any measures at the time? What has been done as a result of this?
