The non-governmental organisation Transparency International (TI) has criticised Slovakia for not doing enough to fight corruption.

Emília Sičáková-Beblavá of Transparency International Slovensko said, as quoted by the Hospodárske Noviny daily, that they did not take into consideration what scandals Slovakia faced but instead concentrated on whether institutions in Slovakia are able to curb corruption. Anti-corruption measures in Slovakia are at a normal European level only on paper and their implementation in practice is far from effective, the organisation suggested.
