ANTI-CORRUPTION AGENCY (ACA) TO BE TOTALLY INDEPENDENT BY YEAR END, SAYS PRIME MINISTER, DATUK SERI ABDULLAH AHMAD BADAWI

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi informed that the Anti-Corruption Agency will be totally independent by this year end and will report to Parliament directly, where it has to answer any query when raised. This is the part of the post-election reforms that he will undertake and which he has pledged to eradicate corruption at all levels during the 2004 election promise.


It seems for once the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah is taking a serious view about eradicating corruption and with this current statement it is hoped that the ACA will be the agency that can monitor and detect corrupt practices in the public sector, which according to the rakyat had tarnished the image of the country as one of the highly corrupted country in the world.

While addressing the first Asean Integrity Dialogue 2008 at Kuala Lumpur today, Datuk Seri Abdullah informed that his government will restructure the Anti-Corruption Agency to become a fully-fledged Malaysian Commission on Anti-Corruption and with this transformation it will enhance the effectiveness, transparency and public accountability of this new commission which will ensure a system of effective checks and balances which the rakyat have been demanding for so long while it will also include a new law to protect whistleblowers and witnesses.

One needs only to observe the operation of illegal gambling such as the four-digit lottery and saucer gambling in the country to know how corruption is going on.

Great news - another bold step. Should now consider giving back the terengganu petrol money to the state - So that nobody can say that the overpriced unessential projects together with the selected contractors are being parachuted from federal - using the state money.

Let the state choose what ever projects they want - afterall the money is theirs, they should determine their destiny.
