Forbes – The Philippines Is Getting More Corrupt Under Duterte

President Rodrigo Duterte’s death squads have killed the democratic process in the Philippines, but they haven’t killed the system that reproduces and perpetuates corruption.

In fact, the Philippines is getting more corrupt under Duterte, dropping 13 notches in the 2017 Corruption Index published recently by Transparency International.

That’s on top of six notches it dropped in 2016, which had already pushed the country closer to highly corrupt Asian countries like Pakistan, and far away from countries like Singapore and New Zealand that are almost corruption free.
