Educating people by degree – Sam Koim’s ‘anti-corruption capsules’

Anti-corruption-poster (Raymond June)The head of PNG’s corruption-busting Task Force Sweep, SAM KOIM, still with a job after intervention by the courts, uses Facebook to publish his ‘anti-corruption capsules’. They’re always well-read, much favoured and we offer one here as an example….

AS a nation progresses, so do its people. Many people get educated. Many find a decent job that sustains and propels them to prosper in life.

Crime also grows in the absence of strong mechanisms to curtail its growth.

Those who want to engage in crimes such as stealing and fraud are often too educated to employ primitive gang looting methods with the use of arms. Thus the crime rate on that front may decline.

They however take up pen and paper. With the former primitive method, the risks are higher and the rewards are at times relatively small.

With the latter, the rewards have proven to be higher and the physical risks are almost nil.

I should say criminals have just changed the weapons used to commit a crime.

Sam, continue the fight - fight the good fight!

You are doing a superb job under very trying conditions.

Good luck and keep safe!

PS, PNG corruption is only slightly behind the level of corruption in Australia.

Too true bro. Well said.
