Malaysia Among Top Bribe Payers?

On Friday, while reading theSUN on the way to work, I came to a news mentioning about top bribe payers in the world, based on a survey done by Transparency International (TI). Its interesting to know that Malaysia was among the Top 10. Its more interesting to know that Malaysia is the only so called Islamic Country in the Top 10 list. Malaysia as the Chairman of OIC. This is a good ending term though. Nice!
I think it was around a month ago when Pak Lah urge all the OIC members to reduce the corruption in their country. Taking an example of Malaysia’s BPR and saying bla bla bla (All those crapt things Pak Lah usually mention). Than, here comes TI proving that Malaysia is the worst among the OIC country. Wow!
BERLIN: Companies from emerging export powers in Asia, namely India and China, were ranked the worst in global anti-corruption organisation Transparency International’s 2006 Bribe Payers Index (BPI).
The BPI looks at the propensity of companies from 30 leading export countries, including Malaysia, to bribe when doing business abroad.
The BPI revealed that although companies from the wealthiest countries generally ranked in the top half of the index, their scores show that they still routinely pay bribes, particularly in developing economies.
A score of 10 indicates a perception of no corruption, while zero means corruption is seen as rampant.
I think Pak Lah did a very good job in taking care of Malaysias’ image as chairman of OIC. I’m impressed! Maybe its because Pak Lah was involve in the Iraq Oil Scandal, who knows. And he did mention that his action was normal action for people like him (politician). If thats normal, what is abnormal to them? I just can’t believe what othe surprises are waiting for us. Do you?
Expect the unexpected my friend…
