Up­per House MP Myo Win from Mon State No. 8 con­stituency asked ques­tion re­gard­ing the Anti-Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion (ACC) at Union Par­lia­ment (joint sit­ting of both houses) about why 25% of com­plaint let­ters re­ceived by the com­mis­sion had no action taken.

Up­per House MP Myo Win from Mon State No. 8 con­stituency said that ACC re­ceived over 10,000 com­plaint let­ters in 2018 out of which they sent sug­ges­tions on only 50%.

Myan­mar stood at 176 out of 180 most cor­rupt coun­tries in­dex dur­ing 2007-2012 and 130 dur­ing 2012-2017. It fell to 132 again in 2018. MP Myo Win pointed out that these figures showed cor­rup­tion cases rose again and it proved that the cor­rup­tion is not fall­ing.
