MOCA to become independent investigative body by year-end – Chang

The government will table legislation this week to bring the Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) one step closer to being an independent investigative body.

National Security Minister Dr. Horace Chang disclosed on Sunday that MOCA currently has more than 300 anti-corruption cases in court.

He said the code of conduct, which is to be tabled, is the last piece of legislation needed to facilitate the realisation of MOCA’s new status by year-end.

This, he said, was in keeping with the government’s legislative agenda, aimed at having “a strong set of legislation dealing with corruption, the gangs and their leadership, and the criminal enterprises associated with them.”
