Address by John McMillan to an Anti-Corruption Seminar, China-Australia Human Rights Technical Cooperation Program, Tianjin, China, 26-27 May 2008.Corruption can take many forms and enter a system in many ways. The corruption incident may be isolated and small in scale – examples include a government official awarding a contract to a friend, granting a licence in exchange for a bribe, disclosing confidential information, falsifying a record, or turning a blind eye to a criminal breach. At the other extreme, corruption can occur on a grand scale that is continuing and that causes great economic and social damage – examples include police protection of drug importation or illegal gambling, or persistent bribery of local government planning officials to approve land rezoning and building construction
