Nepal's demoralized anti-corruption agency (opinion).  "The new constitution adopted last September had curtailed the rights of the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA), barring the constitutional body from investigating ‘improper conduct’ of public officials. The rights of the anti-graft body were rolled back even as it was working to make local laws compatible with the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC)."

Malaysia: ‘Almost all corruption arrests involve youths’.  Nearly 96 per cent or 1,045 of the 1,092 individuals arrested for corruption nationwide from 2013 to October were youths aged 40 and below, according to statistics from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

ICAC should boycott LegCo ‘Rebecca Li’ select committee (opinion).  "The sole objective of the 'Rebecca Li' LegCo select committee is to damage the Independent Commission Against Corruption’s (ICAC) international reputation by scoring cheap political points for its chief proponents."
