Chisinau, 9 June /MOLDPRES/ - The National Anticorruption Centre (CNA) has carried out a study on the profile of the offender in the corruption cases, which shows men’s bigger predisposition to commit corruption offences.
Thus, 92 per cent of men and 8 per cent of women are involved in passive corruption acts, active corruption and influence peddling. The age of the people sentenced for corruption varies from 35 to 45 years.
According to the study of CNA’s analytical department, women who work in the public sector are less predisposed to commit corruption acts, against the ones from the private sector. Yet, this conclusion does not refer to men, who either they work in the private or public sector, they are more predisposed to commit corruption offences.
The study’s data shows that the involvement in corruption acts would be triggered by defendants’ small salaries at the working place and in case of other ones, even the lack of income sources to maintain their families. Thus, the lack of an activity/profession generating salaries makes, for instance, the influence peddling to be a paid occupation, even if it is illicit.
At the same time, the practice to ‘’demand or give bribe’’ can be the result of the non-sanctioning of corrupt people or the imposing of too mild punishments, which does not discourage the involvement in corruption acts. The imposing of punishments which do not imply imprisonment or of mild punishments considerably increases the number of corruption acts and diminishes the residents’ confidence in the judicial system, which also they describe as the worst hit sector from the viewpoint of the presence of corruption, the document reads.
