How the Prevention of Corruption Act catch up Federal Territories Minister the Prevention of Corruption Act which makes any civil servant criminally liable if his act leads to pecuniary benefit to anyone and which is deemed to be not in ‘public interest’. here we, as a country, are going through a phase of our development where political rivalries and one upmanship, media trials, moral vigilantism and judicial overreach have combined to create a situation of deep distrust of everybody. So every decision of a public servant can be questioned on grounds of public interest by people who, with honourable exceptions, lack the experience of ever holding such positions themselves so as to really appreciate the situation that a civil servant faces from his or her first day in office. sting left behind by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) with these arrests was unbearable for Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor beg Najib to appoint him as Federal Territories Minister
DBKL is a gold mine for many senior staff. Many heads of departments who were in the approvals process for development projects retired very rich.Tengku Adnan Mansor, who is Federal Territories Minister, unabashedly took to making a public 'plea bargain' for the DBKL officer arrested for malfeasance. dilemma is familiar to those who win elections: A promise that restores you, can always return to haunt you Just what is the minister up to, trying to wheedle support for a civil servant alleged to have taken bribes and violated the office he was entrusted to?Even 'good' civil servants can succumb to corruption read this Sack Umno, sec-gen Tengku Adnan who continues undermining Umno, and Najib
The law is clear: nobody should be deprived of his personal liberty without the due process of law. Once the investigating agency files its complaint or charge sheet in the court after conducting an investigation and the court takes cognisance and issues process, it is the court that is ‘in-charge’.

mega corruption in DBKL
Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor does not even know about a culture of corruption right under his nose, that can't say very much about his competence, even if he is clean himself.
The kickbacks in DBKL have been common knowledge for years. Is the mayor suggesting he's so stupid he didn't know what was going on under his nose?this mess didn't start yesterday. MACC should go back years and years. Investigate those who had retired also. They might be living off ill-gotten gains.make hundreds of thousands a month illegally, . There is no way anyone can stop the corruption unless there is a change of Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor,MACC should continue to weed out all these scumbags who plunder the country's coffers. Show them no mercy. Splash their names and titles openly on the newspapers and social media.When big wigs like ministers or mayors are charged, then only will I believe the BN government is serious about corruption.

the main factor driving the growing corruption is greed among those vested with power and position. The motivation for them to get involved in corruption is to acquire property and money, so MACC will ensure whatever acquisitions made illegally will be frozen, seized by and forfeited to the government, as well as bringing the guilty to court,”
Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, the open tender is about transparency. Everybody sees what is happening. Decisions must be justified and can be challenged.
