World Corruption Survey: Most Israelis Believe Government Agencies Influenced by Ulterior Motives

Some 73 percent of Israelis believe state agencies bow to outside pressure; 12 percent of Israelis have reportedly bribed a government agency in the past year, according to the survey.

Nearly three quarters of Israelis believe their government agencies are corrupt and bow to outside pressure, according to a survey conducted by the NGO Transparency International. The only government with a worse public perception in this regard is Greece, the survey shows.
