Cuepacs chief blames media for incorrect graft report

Cuepacs president Omar Osman today blamed the media today for misinterpreting his statement on the number of civil servants involved in corruption.

Yesterday, the Bernama state news agency quoted the civil servants union chief as saying that a total of 418,200 or 41 per cent of the 1.2 million civil servants in the country were suspected to be involved in corruption last year.

However, Omar explained that only 51 per cent of the 591 people arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) were civil servants and the figure dropped to 47 per cent a year later and 39 per cent last year.

He added that the number of civil servants interrogated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) between 2007 and 2009 increased from 39 per cent to 51 per cent.

“I just said that about 41 per cent of those detained for interrogation by MACC were civil servants and not 41 per cent of the whole civil service. Many were worried when it was reported that 41 per cent from 1.2 million civil servants were suspected of graft,” he told The Malaysian Insider.

Omar was proud that the percentage has dropped over the last three years and is confident that Cuepacs would be able to bring the figure down to zero per cent by 2012.

“In two years, near the end of 2012. We are confident that the percentage will drop to zero,” he said.


Sometimes a misquote can be the real thing. Maybe God wants to reveal the whole truth? By God's standard working only 50 % capacity is corrupt. So maybe this explained the high percentage which may be near the real figure for inefficiency in the civil services.
