Malaysia’s drop in global graft index shocks MACC chief

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief Dzulkifli Ahmad says Malaysia’s position at 62 out of 180 countries on the index did not reflect the investigative actions taken by MACC and also the preventive and education awareness efforts the agency had conducted in 2017. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, February 22, 2018.

MALAYSIA’S slide in a global corruption perception index for 2017 has shocked Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief Dzulkifli Ahmad who said the ranking did not reflect the agency’s “aggressive” moves to fight graft.

“If we based it on the reality of what happened in the country and the actions taken by the MACC, then it (our rank) should be better than 2016,” Malaysiakini quoted him as saying.
