Corruption prevention

Corruption is any behaviour of a civil servant or a person of an equivalent status that is non-compliant with the given powers or established standards of ethics or the promotion of such behaviour, seeking benefit for himself or other persons and thus undermining the interests of persons and the state. Corruption is one of the most dangerous social phenomena which poses threat to human rights, democracy and the rule of law, distorts social justice, competition, business conditions, impedes economic development, menaces state governance, the stability of state institutions and public morality (National Anti-Corruption Programme of the Republic of Lithuania, Official Gazette Valstybės žinios, 2009, No. 60-2346).
