Debate: Is corruption a moral or a legal issue?

Too often the corruption debate and discussions all over the world are focused on how somebody broke a law. By that definition Mahatma Gandhi was the most corrupt man since he periodically broke British laws!

By dictionary definition corruption relates to doing things which are not ethical.

Hence how should the corruption be defined and fought for greater good?

    Nowadays Corruption doesn't have definition i think, because now its become so huge that the small definitions of books and experience can't define it and even a 10 yr old student can also give the unique definition.
    And mostly corruption have to be a moral issue and it becomes legal sometime but mainly its a moral issue.
