OVER HALF OF MADAGASCAR’S MPs ACCUSED OF CORRUPTION

OCCRP on 20th May reported that Madagascar’s Anti-Corruption Agency (BIANCO) gave federal prosecutors the names of 79 Members of the National Assembly that it assessed were involved in a corruption scandal last year.   The move comes less than 2 weeks before the parliamentary elections on May 27th, in which few of the accused are running.  The 79 members are accused of taking payments of $14,000 to vote for the amendments during a secret meeting outside of the country’s capital.
