Zimbabwe's police and judiciary are perceived by many in the country to be unreliable and corrupt, according to the advocacy group Transparency International. 

Transparency International Zimbabwe said that of 312 reported cases of corruption, 38% concerned the police, Web news agency ZimOnline reported.

VOA was unable to immediately obtain a copy of the report.

Transparency International Zimbabwe's former chairman, University of Zimbabwe Professor John Makumbe, told reporter Patience Rusere of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that police and judicial corruption reflect a breakdown of the rule of law over the past decade.
