Afghans pay close to $3b in bribes annually, says survey.  Integrity Watch Afghanistan's biennial National Corruption Survey, launched 8 December 2016, estimates that $3 billion were paid in bribes in the last one year—an almost 50% increase compared to 2014.

In Vietnam, 10% of corruption assets recovered.  In the last ten years, only 10 per cent of assets worth VNĐ60 trillion (approximately US$2.65 billion) involved in nearly 1,900 corruption cases have been recovered, according to Ngô Mạnh Hùng, Deputy Director of the Việt Nam Anti-Corruption Bureau under the Government Inspectorate (GI), at the Multi-Stakeholder Roundtable on the Second Review Cycle of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption, co-hosted by GI and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes.

Fighting Corruption by Combating Sexual Extortion.  "Sexual extortion, or what law enforcement officials commonly call sextortion, is a type of corruption in which “sex rather than money is the currency of the bribe,” and it affects women and girls (and some men and boys) around the world."
