Q & A From The Star newspaper here:

Q: Would you like to see the ACA modelled after the much-feared ICAC in Hong Kong? 

A: To say the ICAC in Hong Kong is feared and better is incorrect. In fact, they adopted our laws and learnt from us. We have a better track record than them in terms of prosecuting prominent figures and I also don’t think there is any other agency in this region that has taken action against top officials more than us. I rather make the ACA a respected agency than a feared one. 

Q: How many high profile cases is the ACA investigating and what are they investigated for? 

A: There are so many cases being investigated and it is difficult for me to say what is high profile and what is not. We categorise all of them as important cases that need to be investigated.
