Belarusian President Aleksandr G. Lukashenko has been named Person of the Year 2021 by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) in recognition of all he has done to promote organized criminal activity and corruption, according to a release.
“Ghani certainly deserves an award too. He was impressive both for his corruption and gross incompetence. He abandoned his people, leaving them to misery and death so he could live among corrupt former state officials in the moral cesspool that is the Emirates. United Arabs, “he added. OCCRP said.
“It was a banner year for corruption, but Lukashenko stood out from the crowd,” said Drew Sullivan, co-founder of OCCRP who served as a judge on the panel.
The other finalists include Syrian dictator Bashar Hafez al-Assad, Turkish President Recip Tayyip Erdogan and Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz.
Assad led Syria into a destructive civil war and has stolen hundreds of millions of dollars as he clings to power, according to OCCRP.
Erdogan has overseen a corrupt government that laundered Chinese funds for Iranian oil using state banks, he said.

Kurz was the leader of the Austrian People’s Party (OVP), who, along with nine other politicians and journalists, was charged with embezzlement and bribery.
OCCRP said Lukashenko enjoys unlimited power at home and sniffs international shame. In fact, it was the EU sanctions against his country that provoked his retaliation through the refugees, he said.
He seems equally indifferent to the suffering of his own citizens and desperate migrants, including children, shivering, hungry and unable to settle in Belarus, according to the statement.
