Corruption higher up

Reading through the newspapers while having my breakfast this morning, I found that in almost each pages carried reports on corruption involving people holding high posts in the civil services.

Report from Ipoh, stated that a Syariah High Court senior judge was arrested by Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) officers yesterday for allegedly involved in corruption. He was said to have accepted RM4,200 bribe to settle two cases pending hearing in his court.

In Parliament, Minister in the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz want the former country's police chief Tan Sri Hanif Omar to provide details of allegations of police corruption to ACA.

Hanif had on Aug 12, told the Press that a senior police officer had confided in him that 40 per cent of senior officers in the police forces could be arrested without further investigations - strictly on the basis of their lifestyles.

Nazi, who was replying to question from Opposition leader Lim Kit Siang, said Hanif would be irresponsible if he do not give the information he received to the ACA.

In Kuala Lumpur, a former Road Transport Department's director was charged with four counts of corruption.

My Say:

Since time immemorial, the power of money has and will forever be great. ACA must cast its net extra-wide now.
