Government urged to blitz corruption
Critics question why scandals still rampant
The government has been urged to bolster its fight against corruption amid the many scandals that have erupted involving state officials.
Critics have questioned why so much corruption and irregularities within government agencies have been detected nationwide despite the fact that the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) announced after it seized power that it regarded graft eradication as its top priority.
