KANGAR: The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) received some 10,000 information on corrupt activities but only 15 to 20% were substantial leads to initiate investigations. 

ACA director-general Datuk Zulkipli Mat Noor said most of the information referred to the same corrupt practice and some were confined to civil matters or pure jealousy. 

“We encourage various ways for people to channel information to us,'' he said after attending the national integrity secretariat meeting (JKP). 

The meeting, which was the first of several series this year, was opened by Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim. 

Asked if the JKP meeting held since 1998 had helped in reducing corruption, Zulkipli said the JKP mechanism was a unique approach towards addressing bribery concerns and it had received praise from other countries for its effective approach towards reducing bribery.
