Pak Lah's Administration Committed To Fighting Graft, Says Chief Secretary. Is This True?

The Malaysian government under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is bent on eradicating corruption, said Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan.

Mohd Sidek said that there were adequate laws in the country to combat the scourge but more needed to be done in terms of enforcement.

"Abdullah's administration will give added impetus to this (enforcement)," he told reporters after launching a guidebook for the hiring of expatriate workers, here today.

He said this when asked to comment about the sweep being made by the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) on errant government officials and others pertaining to the abuse of government funds highlighted by the Auditor-General in his 2006 report.

The report contained a litany of abuses in government departments and agencies in procurement dealings resulting in losses in the millions for the government.

As of yesterday, 17 people mostly civil servants were detained by the ACA over the matter. Four of them have been charged in court for making false claims.

Mohd Sidek said such problems could be prevented at the source if the relevant personnel at the ministries and agencies concerned observed existing rules and regulations pertaining to procurement.

However, he said only a few "black sheep" out of the 1.2 million civil servants in the country were involved in such activities. (Bernama)

***** What a load of bullshit by
Mohd Sidek Hassan. Only a few 'black sheep' out of the 1.2 million civil servants are involved? And this guy is the Chief Secretary to the Government! The Lingamgate videoclip debacle as well as the many cases of the prosecution's impotence clearly tells a different story than the fairy tale being spun by the Chief Secretary. Perhaps he too like the Chief Justice is yearning for an extension of service after the expiry date?

Whatever the Chief Secretary to the Government say, it is obvious to all who care to see it, that Pak Lah's administration is not at all interested in fighting graft, the appalling situation on the ground in Malaysia today clearly tells exactly the opposite story.
Bullshit seems to be so commonplace, that some of our less enlightened brethren actually believe it.
Given the state of our education system from Standard One right through to Higher Education and Universities, independent thinking is outlawed, logic is not taught, and lateral thinking is not condemned. Learning by rote is encouraged; as is blindly following leaders no matter what.
Malaysia is in terminal decline, and the gradient is getting ever steeper.
In less than a decade, when the oil reserves are depleted, Malaysia may well be a basket case economy.
Then the so called leaders will have escaped to greener shores and the rest will be left to try to pick up the crumbs left behind.

I just couldn't stop laughing when I read that the PM was committed to fighting graft. What a load of crap. This is like Goebbels telling the German people that Adolf Hitler was committed to protecting the rights of the Jews.
