ACA must not be a toothless tiger

Is disheartening to know that public funds was spend unnecessary and now the ACA is probing I hope to see some breakthrough in the prosecuting of those that have abuse their powers. Mismanagement and maladministration is rampant in government department as such those in authorities cannot at any point of time sweep it under the carpet. IF the ACA comes back and say "NO PROSECUTION" than I will be more frustrated with what is happening around us.

There should be more authority vested on the ACA to charge and prosecute. ACA has to be independent from the executive and must be only answerable to Parliament only. As such I hope this time, the ACA can now flex their muscle and to see that corruption is wiped out from creeping into the every departments in this land.

ACA already begun probes into A-G's findings

KUALA LUMPUR: The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) has already begun several investigations on mismanagement of funds which were implicated in the Auditor-General’s report, said ACA director-general Datuk Ahmad Said Hamdan.

He however refused to reveal which ministries or agencies that they have scrutinised, assuring pressmen when met at the ACA Academy here on Friday instead that all would be made known in due time.

“Insyaallah (God willing), we will conclude our findings soon and let justice run its course,” he told newsmen after closing a five-day anti-corruption programme which attended by more than 25 participants from 14 countries.
