Challenge to ACA - LKS

As the saying goes "Same old story", or so called "old newspaper", this time we can expect something to be different?.

AS per LKS's blog

In China, a senior official at the Agricultural Bank of China was executed for corruption following years of ordering suppliers to pay him kickbacks. Wen Mengjie, 50, former head of information technology at one of the bank’s Beijing branches, was executed Tuesday for embezzling and taking bribes worth 15 million yuan (USD1.97 million).

In the Philippinnes, former president Joseph Estrada was sentenced to jail in prison after he was found guilty of massive corruption and plundering the country of tens of millions of dollars in tax kickbacks and bribes.

In Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced he would resign after being dogged by a string of damaging scandals that hampered his reform agenda.

What do we have in Malaysia? Another year of shocking revelations of corruption, criminal breach of trust, overspending and mismanagement of funds by the Auditor-General, Tan Sri Amrin Buang – with the apt headline of the the New Straits Times yesterday “Same old story year in year out” – while the culture of impunity reigns on without anyone in high office having to bear responsibility for corruption and abuse of power.

    In Malaysia, it is glorious to be rich whatever it takes to get there. To be poor it is just plain bad luck. Politics is a zero summer game. Winner take all! The winner here is the same clique that rule this country for 50 years. Towards the next 50!
