Also in Norway occurs corruption . It is difficult to say for sure how big korrupsjonsfaren is, but in Økokrims threat assessment 2018 are referred to two surveys conducted by the Confederation Security council, and ks.

Baymavi Here, it appears that the well ten percent of Norwegian companies have knowledge of the corruption and 13 per cent of the municipal enhetslederne tells us that in the course of the last year felt pressure to favor the few.

It is like corruption in lokalforvaltningen and suspicions that Norwegian companies have paid bribes in foreign countries that captures the media’s attention. Two recent Økokrim cases, however, shows that foreign companies have bribed people in the Uk to secure contracts with Norwegian companies. The one case was in the summer legally settled after tilståelsesdom.
