 Concern for Missiles Should Spread  to Graft

By Moeun Chhean Nariddh

  

I

 commend the government for its anti-terrorism move to destroy 233 surface-to-air missiles which are worth dozens of rural roads and bridges (“Gov’t Vows To Destroy 233 Missiles,” Wednesday, page 1).

 By so doing, the government has proved that it is “horribly honest” with the US and the world and that it would do anything to smash everything deemed as dangerous weapons which can fall into the hands of terrorists.

 Now, it’s time the government should also prove that it’s also “truly honest” with the Cambodian people.

 As recently admitted by a top government official, corruption has seriously damaged the Cambodian economy and society.

Doubtless, the main cause of such mass corruption is the lack of transparency, accountability and legal procedures.

The destruction of the 233 missiles has indicated that Cambodia is far from possessing or even developing weapons of mass destruction.

      Instead, the government should show that it is capable and willing to produce weapons against mass corruption.

 The long-awaited anti-corruption law is probably the most effective of its kind.
