I am apolitical. I am just a layperson who happens to despise corruption and any action or measures taken to stamp out this scourge will receive my fullest support and endorsement (as a voter). I am delighted to see how the government under PM Najib is going all out to eliminate (dare I say eradicate?) corruption in Malaysia.

I cannot help but observe that more cases are being investigated, charged and brought to court. Yet, when Najib first came to power he did not make big announcement about crushing corruption like his sleepy predecessor did. What Najib did was to get the right people to sit down and come up with strategies to fight graft. He only came up with six NKRA (National Key Result Areas) where fighting graft is one of the main elements, a kind of framework on which trusted and selected officers work through indicators, strategies and activities. This is the right way to approach issues. Not by pronouncing “fatwa-style” like Bodohwi did, just great noise and no actions…. “All sounds and fury signifying nothing” to quote the great Shakespeare.

So the massive inter-agency sweep over enforcement officers’ locations the last 48 hours by MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Council, Inland Revenue Board with Bank Negara (Central Bank) coordinated by the Attorney General office is a welcome news. The government is walking the talk. And just look at that…. billions of uncollected taxes , money laundering and outright corruptions being unveiled! I hope they will be careful in framing the charges and ensure the bloody corrupt are sent to where they belong and all their ill-gotten money and properties are confiscated. Gosh! I am so thrilled reading the news.

Bravo PM Najib! You win our hearts.

This is what you need to do to distract the public from the ongoing stupid sex video clip. I am for one, sick of that moronic caper!

The way to the peoples’ hearts and minds is through sincere efforts to rid our nation of these scum who abuse their positions to bleed dry our businessmen and our country. “F@#k them”! (Promise to delete this expletive when my fury against these low life dies down).

There must be ways to monitor and reduce these revenue-sucking activities. Let our officers learn them. Expose the officers to methods adopted by the like of the world-famous and successful Hong Kong’s ICAC ( Independent Commission Against Corruption).

My final hope is that the judiciary will not make it unnecessarily difficult to sentence these scum. Please look at the wood for the trees.

People I just want to ensure that this news is recorded in my blog by re-posting the news from the STAR this evening, below:

KUALA LUMPUR: Two senior Customs officers have been arrested for alleged money laundering and corruption involving billions of ringgit in uncollected taxes.
The arrests came after a massive nationwide operation involving several government agencies.
A high-powered task force comprising officers from Bank Negara, the Inland Revenue Board, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and Attorney-General’s Chambers conducted simultaneous raids throughout the country over the last 48 hours.
More than 400 MACC officers were involved in the operation that saw hundreds of documents being seized, according to a statement from the MACC Tuesday.
The documents belonged to forwarding agents in several ports in Klang, Penang, Kuantan, Johor and Sabah.
The raiding team also seized several Customs computers besides freezing and seizing of hundreds of bank accounts belonging to agents and officers, the statement said.
Some 25 Customs offices nationwide and more than 120 forwarding companies and their holding companies were raided.
It is learnt that Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail is personally supervising the operation from the legal aspect as investigations are also being carried out under the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorism Financing Act 2001.
