The judiciary is one of the institutions in which most citizens are suspicious. The institutions responsible for combating corruption are what generate more distrust of American citizens, according to the Global Corruption Barometer. The Index measures the perception of citizens in 107 countries around bribery and corruption in the institutions. The results show that only 10 countries citizens perceived that corruption declined in the past two years, while 13 remained and the remaining 84 perceived an increase. The police listed as the most corrupt sector in 36 countries, the judiciary in 20 and 20 political parties. These results are the average for Latin America and the index of corruption perception scores from 1 to 5, with 5 being the maximum degree of corruption. (E & N).
