Media Statement
by Lim Kit Siang
(Petaling Jaya, Monday):
Corruption, abuse of prosecution powers by the Attorney-General, the deadly viral epidemic in Sarawak which had killed 31 infants and the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) would be four major issues in next week’s Parliamentary question time.

My first parliamentary question when Parliament reconvenes on Monday will be on corruption, asking the Acting Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to report to Parliament as to "what actions and measures the Government has taken on all fronts to launch an all-out war against corruption whether in increasing powers to fight corruption; enhancing penalties for corruption offences; creating an anti-corruption political culture as in encouraging an investigative media, a more accountable public service and more transparent procurement and pricing policies whether by government or privatised agencies; or developing and/or strengthening anti-corruption watchdog mechanisms."

My oral questions for next week’s Parliament includes the following:
