Bribery is the circumventing of law and violating the rights of others, and plotting to get worldly pleasures through illegal means.
Bribery is a contagious disease that leads to chaos and decay, and destroys infrastructures and legal bases of society at all times.
Bribery does not move in one way, does not expand within one area, and does not directly face the law, but it appears in every time, in a way or another. It follows special manners and changes its form and color, making it difficult to trace or know it in the administrative institutions in society. Hence, this article and research about all hidden and apparent points of this issue with all its changing image and color is a new research, where it is necessary to unveil it, and this is the responsibility of a jurisprudent who is full aware of his time, and who should watch the events, moment by moment, to know the defects, in order to fix them.

We will talk about its area and limits, and whether it includes the bribery in the judiciary circle only or it expands to include all administrative circles and all administrations officials. According to the technical and mental evidences, it will be clear that its area is much wider.
