Transparency International has just published the survey which puts Croatia on 70th place of Corruption Perception Index. Croatia is, according to the survey, one of the most corrupt countries of Europe - with only the likes of Serbia, Bosnia, Rumania and Macedonia being perceived as more corrupt.
Croatia, according to the survey, has corruption levels similar to Burkina Faso, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia and, last but not least, Poland.
Those who pay attention to European affairs - which, of course, don't include mainstream Croatian media - are probably aware that the increase of corruption in past few years played major part in former Communists being not only removed from power, but all but obliterated during recent polls.
This is where the similarities between Croatia and Poland end. I doubt that Ivo Sanader and his party comrades should worry about Transparency International reports having any effect at the polls.
