Re: 'Corruption sucks our blood', By Martina Pisárová, Feb 10 - 16, Vol 9, No 5

I hear about corruption from Slovak relatives all the time. They just don't know how to deal with the phenomenon. It was the way of life under communism and it looks like it still is.

I hope the campaign will help make the public aware how difficult life is when you have to bribe people in public service to get job done properly while your taxes pay for their livelihood already.
