Corruption Warning Signs" a World Bank publication is now available in Portuguese (Sinais de Alerta de Corrupcao e Fraude um Processos Licitatorios), thanks to Judge Marcio Rocas, Humphrey Fellow at the World Bank, who is the author of the translation from the original version, tailored to address the specific targeted audience of Brazilian prosecutors, judges, law enforcement authorities and lawyers. Ministerio Publico do Estado de Minas Gerais kindly provided peer review of the document.
This document focuses on corruption that may occur in funded projects of government or international organizations, but corruption cannot be an isolated phenomenon within a project. Instead, it may be systemic, affecting a whole sector or country. So a project to be implemented in such an environment is likely to be susceptible to this broader, general environment, not only on project-specific issues.
