    In this photo supplied by The New Age newspaper of South Africa and taken Thursday May 2, 2013, guests watch as the bridal couple, Vega Gupta, centre right, and Aakash Jahajgarhia, are pulled across a pool on a float at Sun City's Palace of the Lost City, South Africa, during their wedding ceremony. The self-proclaimed "wedding of the century" has become a public relations disaster for the government since a private jet appears to have received diplomatic courtesies, allegedly bypassing customs procedures, when the jet landed the wedding party at the military Waterkloof Air Force Base near Pretoria, South Africa. The jet landed Tuesday angering many South Africans who see the scandal as a case of cronyism linking big business and government and igniting accusations that security laws were breached.

    In this photo taken Thursday, May 2, 2013, a plan prepares to take-off from the Waterkloof Air Force Base near Pretoria, South Africa, after being embroiled in a scandal about landing a wedding party at the military base. The South African government says five high-ranking officials have been suspended after this charter plane carrying some 200 guests from India to a family wedding, was allowed to land at the air force base on Tuesday May 1. The jet landed Tuesday allegedly bypassing customs procedures and angering many South Africans who see the scandal as a case of cronyism linking big business and government and igniting accusations that security laws were breached.

    TO GO WITH STORY : HUNGARY LAND SCANDAL - In this picture taken Oct. 10, 2012, a National Land Management Organization official talks on his phone while standing on land won by a farmer, before its handover ceremony outside the village of Gomba, central Hungary. Hungarian farmers say that the government has not kept its promise to lease out local lands to them, and they allege that most of the lease contracts of the state lands are being awarded to political cronies. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and his conservative Fidesz party are being widely accused by village farmers of broken campaign promises, cronyism and shady deals in which friends, relatives and political supporters have snapped up valuable long-term agriculture leases on state lands, cutting out many small local farmers.

    People count money at a bank in Hanoi, in this April 6, 2012 file picture. When one of Vietnam's richest and best-connected bankers was arrested in August, a move that sent the country's stock market tumbling, a little-known blog called Quan Lam Bao broke the news hours ahead of state media. The site, whose name means "officials doing journalism", has become one of the country's most-visited as it piles often-savage criticism on the Prime Minister, accusing him of greed, cronyism and economic mismanagement.
