About corruption

 In practice there are various definitions of corruption, which on one hand consider the social and political ingredient, and on the other its economic or organizational ingredient. Therefore, corruption cannot be equated merely with its criminal law definition; its definition is wider. The regulations that determine corruption are based primarily on moral grounds on fairness and impartiality of public servants and persons with public authorization

Corruption has several specific manifestations - from extortion, blackmailing, fraud, falsity to nepotism; it always presents a two-way transaction: on one side, the bidder of the bribe, and on the other side its recipient.

The fact is all forms of corruption are not harmful in the same way; however, each one of them undermines the regulations and has destructive effects on the economic and political development of a country.

The Slovenian Penal Code provides both an opportunity and encouragement for the bribe giver in order that the court doesn't punish him if he reports the act prior to its disclosure (valid only for Articles 242 and 262 of the Penal Code-1).
