Once in a while - a 'show piece' to show that something being done to fiight corruption...

From time to time, we hear that some action has been taken as Corruption...but surely this is not enough...

If the government seriously intends to fight corruption - then there must be an independent body to fight corruption set up in the country - who is only concerned with the fighting of Corruption.. and the Hong Kong Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) is a good model to follow. No use just getting a Anti-Corruption Commission which is toothless, and not independent.

Now, I believe, from time to time a few get arrested and charged for corruption - BUT this is all but 'show-pieces' lest the public are unhappy about the efforts of the government and ACA in fighting corruption. Of course, a few of these get highlighted in the media. One wonders what happens to the BIG boys - they never do get caught, tried and found guilty - do they now? Was Mohd Najib Razak ever investigated with regard allegations about some 'submarine deal'? If no, why not?
A police sergeant who has been in the force for more than 27 years was yesterday sentenced to one year's jail and fined RM25,000 for corruption.

Sessions Court judge Nurmala Salim found Sergeant Abd Aziz Saad, 46, guilty of soliciting RM5,000 from Yap Kian Vun, manager of a direct-selling company, at the Seri Kembangan Petaling Jaya South police district at 5.30pm on July 15, 2003.

The money was an inducement to release four of Yap's employees who were detained for cheating.

Aziz, who was then an assistant investigating officer, was in charge of the case. - The New Straits Times, 14/10/2008 - Cop who sought bribe gets jail, fine

Corruptions will always be here with this untouchable ruling "team". That's why Rakyat basic needs can't be fulfilled. We are losing out to our neighourssss who used to be far behind us. Damn ! Who are the root cause of all evil ?....Yes, you are 101% correct. We need to clean up all the "filthy" MPs in PRU13 once for all. One day ketuanan Rakyat will prevail.

Yup, the ACA will only nail those small fries (and make a big hoo-haa over it!) whilst they turn a blind eye on the big fish.
