Canada’s efforts to fight foreign bribery are 'shockingly low,' new report says

  Canada’s efforts to fight foreign bribery are 'shockingly low,' new report says OTTAWA — Canada’s efforts to fight foreign bribery are “shockingly low,” particularly when compared to key allies such as the U.S., United Kingdom and France, a new report says. “There’s unfortunately a persistent belief that corruption is not something Canadian companies need to think about, either because some companies just don’t understand the risk, or worse, some companies think they won’t get caught,” said James Cohen, executive director of Transparency International Canada, in a statement. “The truth is that Canada needs to drastically step up its efforts in ensuring we are not the source of corruption, or the place to hide the money from corruption.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Sophie Wilmès, Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs and former head of government suffering from COVID-19, was admitted to intensive care on Thursday, reports the public channel VRT.

She announced on Saturday that she had contracted the coronavirus. According to her, it was transmitted to her by a relative, rather than in the performance of her duties. Sophie Wilmès is 45 years old.

His spokesperson did not respond to the requests. Alexander De Croo, who succeeded him at the beginning of October as head of government, wished him a speedy recovery.

"No one is safe from this virus. All together we will defeat COVID-19," he wrote on Twitter.
