The globalization of crime is closer than you think. In an article, “Bulgaria Hears Call to Impeach President”, in today’s Financial Times (see link below), the European Commission is considering witholding billions of dollars of aid from its newest member because of endemic corruption in government circles, including the president.
Even if you don’t read the entire article, take note of this one short paragraph that encapsulates what I have been trying to say on this topic:
One Olaf [EU Commission anti-fraud body] inquiry involved the illegal import into Bulgaria of Chinese rabbit meat, which was resold to customers in the EU after being repacked using false Argentine health certificates.
Can’t top that can you!
