Abstract

The practice of corruption involving public servant, especially among government enforcement agencies, regularly attracts widespread coverage from local news report because their affairs implicate public interest in general. The government enforcement agencies that are regularly associated with corrupt practices are the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP) the Immigration Department of Malaysia (IDM), and the Royal Malaysian Customs Department (RMCD). This working paper analyses the complicity of the main government enforcement agencies, namely RMP, IDM and RMCD, in corrupt practices as reported in the local news involving detention, arrest, prosecution and conviction of corruption cases among members of RMP, IDM and RMCD from 2017 until Jun 2018. The findings from this working paper show that cases on the arrest, detention and prosecution for corruption offences involving the government enforcement agencies take place almost every month throughout the year as reported in the local news. They involve the smallest amounts of graft to millions of ringgit in bribe value, and from the lower-rank members to the senior officers of the relevant department.
