Myanmar drafting new anti-corruption law
font size    

Myanmar is drafting a new anti- corruption law in a bid to help install a clean administrative machinery, a local weekly reported Tuesday.

Expected to come out before the end of this year, the law is being drafted by the Ministry of Home Affairs in cooperation with legal experts since last year, the Weekly Eleven News said.

The new law would not only apply to government servants but also private company employees as well as other individuals who are non-government employees, the report said, adding that the new law will substitute the outdated one enacted in 1948 when the country regained independence.

Since late last year, as part of the government's measures aimed at eliminating malpractice and misconduct within the government mechanism, a number of ministries, including those of Home Affairs, Energy, Finance and Forestry, have invited complaints from the public about malpractices of personnel with the ministries.

Earlier official reports said the Myanmar government has suspended posts of more than 100 officials and staff from the Customs Department in a crack down on corruption and bribery since last November. Of them, over three dozens have been sentenced to long-year prison terms, according to legal sources.

Official statistics also show that the government punished 1, 247 service personnel for malpractice in 2005 and 2006.
