Transparency International has said that Iran has fallen slightly in its global Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) ranking.
From at total of 176 countries, Iran came in at number 131, just lower than last year’s position of 130 out of 167 countries, and tying with Kazakhstan, Nepal, Russia and Ukraine.
Denmark and New Zealand came first, followed by Finland and Sweden.
The Corruption Perceptions Index is a composite index, drawing on corruption-related data collected by a variety of reputable institutions.
