Malaysia ex-MACC chief / Republic of Korea ambassador fired / Anti-corruption fighter's reflection

Malaysia's former anti-graft chief clears the air over resignation.  Former chief of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Mohd Shukri Abdull said he was not fired or pressured to step down from his job, as he addressed speculation on why he quit at the midway point of a two-year contract, explaining that this departure was planned from the very beginning.

The Straits Times:


S. Korea's ambassador to Vietnam fired for violating anti-graft law.  South Korea's ambassador to Vietnam, Kim Do-hyun, has been dismissed for a breach of anti-graft legislation and other irregularities. For instance, when he and his family attended an opening ceremony of a golf course in Vietnam last October, they reportedly received funding for a hotel stay and airline tickets, violating the strict "Kim Young-ran Act".

The Korea Herald:


Reflections of an anti-corruption fighter — part II (Blog).  "We have, one critic once pointed out to me, "admired the problem" at length but all our analysis and diagnosis hasn't helped devise practical responses that seem to work."
