Assessment English N°02 2nd term

Part one: Reading

A/ Comprehension

Read the text carefully then do the activities.

Bribery, a form of pecuniary corruption, constitutes a crime and is defined as the offering, receiving, or soliciting of any item of value to influence the actions of an official or other person in discharge of a public or legal duty. The bribe is the gift bestowed to influence the recipient’s conduct. It may be any money, good, right in action, property, privilege, advantage, or merely a promise or undertaking to induce or
influence the action, vote, or influence of person in an official public capacity.

The offence may be divided into two great classes: the one, where a person invested with power is induced by payment to use it unjustly; the other, where power is obtained by purchasing the suffrages of those who can impart it. Likewise, the briber might hold a powerful role and control the transaction; or in other cases, a bribe may be effectively extracted from the person paying it, although this is better known as extortion.

The forms that bribery takes are numerous. For example, a motorist might bribe a police officer not to issue a ticket for speeding, a citizen seeking paperwork or utility line connections might bribe a functionary for faster service. Bribery may also take the form of a secret commission, a profit made by an agent, in the course of his employment, without the knowledge of his principal. Bribers and recipients of bribery are likewise numerous although bribers have one common denominator and that is the
financial ability to bribe.
