Language: English and Malay

The series of incidents in recent days have revealed that corruption as a public issue in Malaysia has gone from bad to worse, enough to arouse serious concerns on the part of the citizenry. In view of this, the Civil Rights Committee of the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (CRC-KLSCAH) will be holding a forum, entitled “Re-examining the Anti-corruption Mechanism”, with a view to dissecting the existing anti-corruption effort and examining its defects, while putting forward reform proposals.

Recent rumours of corruption, involving both the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) chief and a minister, have dealt a severe blow to the government’s commitment to fighting graft. Worse, the newly released Malaysia Transparency Perception Survey 2007 indicates not even a slight improvement in the transparency and integrity of government agencies, with the police and the road transport department being at the bottom of the list. Moreover, as much as 85% of the Chinese surveyed admit to having resorted to giving bribe. All these are issues that await in-depth analysis.

It is our hope that the speakers can address the following aspects:

a. Administrative transparency and the motivation for reform

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi won his mandate on an anti-corruption platform. What are the causes behind the lack of progress to date? Corruption in the public sector seems to be in tandem with the levels of administrative transparency. If the government promises reform, what would be the effects of such effort? How to evaluate institutional transparency?

It is rather shocking to know that even law enforcement agencies have succumbed to the wave of corruption, and this has been going for a considerable period of time which has almost become a tacit rule within the sector, prompting the public to question the will of the government to fight graft. Is it really possible for the force of reform to come from within the system?

b. A Review of the anti-corruption mechanism

i.         The function of the Anti-Corruption Agency and the selection of its chief

ii.       The possibility of independent investigation into corruption

iii.      The role of the public in reporting graft to ensure the feasibility of the mechanism

iv.     The procedure of the prosecution of corrupt public servants and its strengths and drawbacks

c. Proposal

i.         What kind of institutional reform can help prevent corruption?

ii.       The feasibility of making the ACA a statutory body accountable to parliament.

Many thanks.
