MACC - Power Trip Mission

With great power, comes great responsibility.
Thats in comic. In Malaysia, with great power, comes the need of great publicity. They need some "face" or respect and do not feel shame in doing cheap publicity.

ALOR STAR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is expected to reveal several "big" corruption cases involving syndicates soon, its Director of Intelligence Datuk Mohd Jamidan Abdullah said Tuesday.

He said investigations conducted following information received from the public had enabled the MACC to penetrate certain syndicates and discover cases of corruption.

"Revealing these cases is important in meeting the demands of the people for the MACC to be a commission of high integrity following its elevation from the AntiCorruption Agency (ACA)," he told reporters after witnessing the handing over of duties to the new Kedah MACC director at the MACC office here.

Penang MACC deputy director Idrus Jaafar has taken over as the Kedah MACC director from Nooraziah Abdul Manaf who has been posted to the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya as the director of the Inspection and Consultancy Division.

Mohd Jamidan declined to mention any of the cases under probe, saying that the MACC would not reveal any case without concrete evidence.

Meanwhile, Idrus said six public officers in the support group in Kedah were among 19 people arrested by the MACC between January and June this year. - Bernama

I mean, what do you expect us to respond in releasing such statement? WOOOOOO WEEEEEE WOAHHHHHHH????
I dont even want to start doubting if THEY themselves actually taking bribes. Even if I go into a super naive mode to believe them in being squeeky clean. Do they need to trying-oh-so-very-hard to impress?

IF they are doing their work, and IF they are indeed combating corruptions, of course its a good thing. And if there's a publicity on it, sending out warnings to the ppl out there, it is ALSO a good thing.
BUT this. THIS. is entirely a different thing.

You are supposedly the MACC, you do, you catch, you apprehend, you warn.
This is none of the above. This is pasar malam publicity act.
