Hungary became the most corrupt country in Europe, Transparency International released the list of the most corrupt countries in the world.
Hungary and Belgium are in an ongoing dispute over corruption and other legal issues that have led to the freezing of Hungarian assets worth billions of euros.
To recover these funds, Hungary has promised several legal and anti-corruption reforms, including the establishment of a new agency, including a representative from Transparency International.
Last year, the most corrupt country in Europe was Bulgaria, which has now been replaced by Hungary.
The report said that a decade of erosion of democratic traditions and the breakdown of the rule of law by the ruling party had led Hungary to this situation.
Transparency International said there was evidence of misuse of domestic and EU funds against political elites.
