Ong wants ACA to probe other agencies under Ministry too

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 28 - The Transport Ministry is going on a major house cleaning.After the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) moved in on corrupted Puspakom officials and customers, Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat wants its to investigate corruption practices in other agencies under the ministry.

Speaking to reporters at the Parliament's Lobby here today,Ong, in welcoming the ACA's move, said he was prepared to cooperate with the agency to eradicate corruption.

"I want such a move to continue and I also want to see such collaboration between the ACA, Puspakom and even the police strengthened and action taken.

"I reiterate that I will not condone this. Enough is enough," he told reporters when asked to commenton news reports that 55 people nationwide, 28 of whom are Puspakom employees, had been nabbed by the ACA.

The suspects, who were arrested on Tuesday and yesterday, were believed to have earned up to RM1,000 a day or RM55,000 a month "in takings" from vehicles allegedly sent to Puspakom for inspection.

Ong said that he had been monitoring the situation on the ground and wanted all runner syndicates and vendors to be eliminated.However, he said, one of the hurdles was the hesitation of the complainants to furnish evidence of their transactions to allow investigations to be
carried out.

"I personally take special interest in this matter and I want action to be taken," he said. - Bernama
