I am trying to accomplish a task for me. A person is assigned to verify me but unfortunately s/he is asking to give them some cost (to be clear, bribe).
Is this kind of bribe allowed for the one who giving (which is me in the current scenario)?
Points to be noted:
- I am not competing anyone. No one will be harmed directly by this bribe (but of course, there is social impact of bribe).
- I am not trying to do anything illegal.
- I am being forced to bribe and have no other option.
