Corruption in Afghanistan runs deeper than the involvement of drug trafficking networks. Afghanistan is an overall hugely corrupt nation; in the World Bank’s report, “World Governance Indicators,” Afghanistan is placed in the lowest 1 percentile: the only state considered less able to control corruption is Somalia. A consequence of ongoing violent conflict, the existence of former warlords (many of whom profited from the illicit opiate trade during their conflicts with Soviet and Taliban forces) in state institutions and their illegitimate authority in rural areas, the lack of state influence in many areas, and ineffective institutional constraints on corruption is that a culture of impunity has arisen in which criminal networks are protected by corrupt state employees at all levels.

In 1998, the Armenian Parliament passed laws on Formation of Courts, On the Status of Judges, On Prosecution, On the Solicitor Service, On Compulsory Implementation of Judiciary Acts, and On the Service Providing the Compulsory Implementation of Judiciary Acts.
