Venezuelan Acting Comptroller General Adelina González has disclaimed the Corruption Perception Index disseminated on Wednesday by NGO Transparency International, according to which Venezuela is the most corrupt country in Latin America.

"Such a perverse assertion makes no distinction and offends the dignity of all Venezuelans. It has been made by an organization which usually prepares reports without any validation or documentary support; which are not preceded by any studies, analyses, assessments or audits conducted with the necessary and essential technical and methodological rigor," said the senior officer in a press release.

According to González, the conclusions reached by the organization "are based on the perception stemming from the information released on the media and the opinions provided by the owners of banks, industry and trade."

"That organization is not supported by citizens' credibility and acceptance, as it continuously issues opinions without knowing the legal framework of countries, let alone the functional structure of the systems of internal and external control at the national, state, municipal or community levels," she contended.
