Eritrea is ranked among the 10 most corrupted countries

Eritrea is ranked among the 10 most corrupted countries in the world according Transparency International. The corruption perceptions index countries based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be on a scale 0-100 where 0 means that a countyry is perceived as highly corrupt. Eritrea scored 18 where government officials , military commanders and others in power take advantage of their positions for personal profit with undeveloped legal, economic, and political framework.
It is widely believed that high ranking military officials are involved in human trafficking, money laundering, contraband activities and arm selling to insurgents elsewhere in Africa and middle east.

Review overview
  • semere 2 May 29, 2015

    This Index was released in December 2014. The Criteria for evaluation corruption in a given country include weak institutions (such as the judiciary and property rights), over-regulation, entrenched bureaucracy, and underdeveloped civic society and media.

    I am convinced that Eritrea could be the last. The problem is that Transparency International don’t have full details about the single countries. Countries like Eritrea don’t release real statistics.

      semere 2,

      so which one are you not happy about Transparency? You implied TI don’t have full details about the single countries,for that eritrea report is not credible. Hold on Mr…are you saying Eritrea is not corrupt country? The boss of those thieves and corrupt officials even admit it before few days. Get real bro. You are bad defender of HGDEF. You started by mentioning the release dated and then follow by you bullshit.

        Mr Tes,
        Please read carefully before giving your opinion on others comments. Did I say Eritrea is not corrupt? On the contrary, I am saying that Eritrea may be the worst country in corruption if the TI has the correct statistics. In the list it is the last but 10. If you want the list of the last 10 corrupt countries:

        166 Eritrea
        166 Libya
        166 Uzbekistan
        169 Turkmenistan
        170 Iraq
        171 South Sudan
        172 Afghanistan
        173 Sudan
        174 North Korea
        174 Somalia

        Higdefits/Mendefits have always believed that “Eventhough it flies, it is a goat”. These are the typical Higdefits, who fanatically believe that the regime may have killed a few, may have stolen a little bit, may have jailed a few, may have acted a bit irresponsible..etc, but all and all the regime is “Gooder” than any regime on planet earth. Once again, we may see another full blown infighting among the hyenas, and the survival of the hyenas with the strongest jaws/cruelest/fastest combat skills.
        May all the hyenas injure/wound/hurt each other badly that they die from their own infected rounds.Thanks

    Who else can be the most corrupted country other than Eritrea where there are no legal and regulatory agencies whatsoever. No independent media. The judicial, legislature and executive is just one man. No check and balance. Complete blackout. And yet the irony is that the super corrupt is talking about his presumably corrupt officials. He can no more cheat any reasonable person except his own blind supporters.

    With Eritreans starving to death and living in brutal slavery at home and in the savage Arab world, with Eritrea producing the largest number of refugees more than any nation but the Eritrean Higdef regime stashing and hiding badly needed hard currency of more than a billion dollars in Swiss and Arab Qatari banks while children are dying of starvation, schools run aground and hospital shelves empty of basic painkiller Aspirin, then who would be surprised of Eritrea being ranked among top five, let alone of the top ten corrupt nations?

    The saddest part is that Eritreans created this monster system in the name of liberation with lies and concoction of falsified stories in the name of Ghedli.

    “It is widely believed that high ranking military officials are involved in human trafficking, money laundering, contraband activities and arm selling to insurgents elsewhere in Africa and middle east.”

    Of course!There is no doubt about it.
    I wish I could remember the name of the gentleman who was sharing his experience to a website manger (outside this one) in Australia. The Eritrean gentleman died shortly after the interview.This is what he said, not exactly word by word, coma by coma:

    “You see, the tegadeltti have lost thirty years of the lives without the benefit of modern education; without the opportunity to establish a profession in their chosen field; without establishing anything at all as a base for their future…… for them, NOW is the only time they have left to make-up for the lost time. And they will do everything to recoup the lost chance.” Ahhhhh…..I wish, I could remember his name– may his soul rest in peace.

    Dear Reader,
    Did you really believe that the “Issayas” is a Saint! Did you really believe that the “Issyas” loves Eritrea than YOU who is reading this line? Do you really believe that the “issayas” would simply walk away without establishing a foundation for whatever years left in him? Please, let us be REAL! Of course, he would amass anything and everything that comes “his” way and deposit it in a secured place like Swiss Bank. Look what the FIFA people are doing. At least the “Issayas” can claim to deserve what ever “he” gets — because “he” put his Life on Line for thirty years.

    Dear Reader,
    ‘YOU ain’t seen nothing yet’ in Eritrea!!! Have a pleasant week-end in a secured and peaceful Diaspora Life. If you sneer at my good wishes take the first flight to Dear Asmara, Eritrea and check it out!

      Prof rezen,
      Isayas is now really mad by this article. Why? He was shooting for the top place and now his is just on top ten list? This is not acceptable.
      Now, he will recalibrate to do more damage, if that’s what it takes.

      • rezen May 29, 2015

        Simon G, I know you are witty with words and seeing at things in a unique way — your way. I love, honestly, independent mind.

        I cracked-up at your last line >>> Issayas “CALIBRATING” his psychotic mind “to do more damage, if that is what it takes”. Fantastic!

        By the way, I admire people who use words to describe the EXACT inner ‘soul’ of their message not only from the dictionary meaning point of view but also from the connotation in bringing out the inner feeling of the message that they are trying to covey to a reader thousands of miles away. It is a very difficult undertaking, because the writer does not have the luxury of using eye contact and expression; smiling and laughter; the melody of his sound; and the body languages; and lastly the movements of the hands flinging in every direction (ex: see a good Italian friend, or for that matter a typical Eritrean!
        I better STOP before I run into a problem!!!!

    No wonder, to see the clique in Asmara stood at top ten corrupt countries in the world, the entire project of hgdef was built by corruption and blood of innocent citizens.
