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?

    Nov 4 2012: I think it is just like stealing a thing so corruption is a moral and legal issue as well. We need to address this on both aspects by improving the ethics from a early age and bringing the corrupt person before the justice.
