Corruption in EU costs '120bn euros' - EU Commission
The EU's Home Affairs Commissioner has warned of staggering levels of corruption in member countries.
Presenting the first EU-wide anti-corruption report, Cecilia Malmstrom said the problem eroded trust in democratic institutions and provided a breeding ground for organised crime.
She said the true cost of corruption was at least 120bn euros (£99bn) annually.
