Corruption & Cronyism >>>

If only Malaysia got political will to charge corrupt politicians as Indonesia, then Malaysia still got a little hope…

I have not seen a single powerful politician in Malaysia is being charged for corruption so far.

PM Najib asked why contracts handled by the government agencies are more expensive than private one.

My answer is 5% kick back to his cabinet members is an unwritten rule if any one wants to get government projects.

Indonesia ex-MPs held over central banker vote graft

Indonesia’s anti-graft commission said it detained 18 former members of the House of Representatives and a sitting lawmaker Friday over alleged bribery related to the appointment of a central banker.

Several members of the House of Representatives from the 1999 to 2004 term allegedly received bribes to vote for Miranda Goeltom to become deputy governor of Bank Indonesia.

“Based on further investigation, we found that they were suspected of receiving bribes in the form of travellers cheques in relation to their votes to appoint the Bank Indonesia senior deputy,” Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) spokesman Johan Budi said in a statement.

“For investigation purpose, KPK will detain them for 20 days starting from January 28, 2011,” he said.

Goeltom, who no longer has a position as a senior deputy of the bank, has not been named as a suspect. Her friend, Nunun Nurbaiti, has been named as a suspect as the distributor of the travellers cheques to the parliamentarians.

Indonesia is one of the most corrupt countries in the region.
