Corruption is a problem that has long been a problem in various countries. Every year, the money lost due to acts of corruption reaches trillions. With strict penalties in place, it is suggested that corruption will stop. However, the corruption penalties imposed in various countries vary.

In the United States, corruptors who are arrested are subject to punishment in the form of fines and imprisonment. If the fine given exceeds the specified limit, a prison sentence will be imposed. In America, the maximum prison sentence given to corruptors is 25 years.
Corruptors who are caught can be subject to criminal penalties or imprisonment of up to 10 years. In addition, corruptors can also be fined and must pay compensation to the victim.
Corruptors who are caught can be subject to criminal penalties, imprisonment of up to 14 years, and fines. In England, prison sentences given to corruptors can also be longer than 14 years.
In India, corruptors who are caught can be subject to criminal penalties, imprisonment of up to 7 years, and fines. In addition, the corruptors must also pay compensation to the victims.
The punishment given to corruptors is also very strict. In Indonesia, corruptors who are caught can be subject to criminal penalties, imprisonment of up to 20 years, and fines. In addition, the corruptors must also pay compensation to the victims.
Even though corruptors, literally, do not commit murder, the impact of their actions is very large and detrimental to the country. Corruptors who have stolen state funds will receive the death penalty by beheading. The executors were trained executioners. Beheading executions, which are claimed to adopt Islamic law, are usually carried out in public places, and are allowed to be watched by many people. The aim is as public learning to prevent similar crimes from happening again. In fact, convicts who have been executed, will be left alone for several days. Until now, Saudi Arabia still maintains the death penalty as the most severe punishment for the perpetrators of fatal crimes.
Since 2013, China has imposed the death penalty for corruptors. The President of China, Xi Jinping, at that time promoted an anti-corruption campaign to eradicate corruptors from high-level officials to low-level officials.
However, the death penalty is not mandatory. The final decision remains with the judge, depending on various considerations in the trial.
The punishments given to corruptors in various countries are quite different. However, the punishment given is quite strict, so it can be an example for others not to commit acts of corruption. In addition, this penalty can also be a way to prevent acts of corruption in the future.
