Corruption Index On A Decline While Najib Plays With Words


KUALA LUMPUR, SEPT 25: There is no need for Datuk Seri Najib Razak to indulge in tedious wordplay to curb corruption while the administrative corruption index is in a decline.

The situation is evident that the government has zero commitments in overcoming these symptoms when issues of corruption have been raised several times over the years.

MP for Gombak Azmin Ali said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) should be given more prosecution power to indict those who are found guilty accordingly.

“Too often we hear this statement from the Prime Minister, but today’s administration is more severe than the last one.

“The index of corruption is too serious. This shows that there is no commitment and determination. I have some recommendations to improve the MACC.

“A large budget should be created to make up for its own service commissions so that they can appoint or remove any officers. This was not done – instead it was postponed several times,” he told TV Selangor.

Najib allegedly wishes to make corruption a thing of the past for the country’s future interests.

The Deputy President of PKR said the MACC’s dignity could be lifted if there was no intervention from any parties or ‘executive hands’.

“Do not play with words. Integrity is important in any administrations. It can only be protected and honored if MACC can be independent and not attached to anyone,” he said.
