PM launches Malaysia’s Anti-Corruption Plan. The National Anti-Corruption Plan 2019-2023 (NACP) launched by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad seeks to deal with the country’s four main causes of corruption: administrative failure (the manipulation of systems and procedures), conflict of interest (relating to discretionary power, absolute power and political interference), weak internal control and non-compliance, and a lack of transparency.
University councillors escape asset declarations. The Thai National Anti-Corruption Commission has decided to exempt university council chairs and members from having to declare their assets and liabilities, although an earlier version published in the Royal Gazette late last year required senior officials to do so.
