GMA tapped HK-graft buster Tony Kwok Wan-Mai as her special adviser on anti-corruption. According to him the Philippines is no mission impossible.

"So, some people think fighting corruption in the Philippines is like being handed a poisoned chalice, do they? Well, I guess they haven't been to Nigeria then."


The Battle Plan


""There is no shortage of political will to fight corruption here in the Philippines. From the President down to her Cabinet ministers and heads of government departments, you have the will. Ordinary Filipinos are fed up with it as well."

"You must have a legal system that is prepared to take the cases on, process them quickly and see that wrongdoers are jailed.

..the anti-corruption agencies, such as the Office of the Ombudsman, must have the tools to fight.


The Skeptics

"Comparing the Philippines to Hong Kong is just ludicrous," one diplomat said.

"Hong Kong was ruled by the British and had the rule of law. What do you have here? You have a group of rich families and vested interests looking after one another ... Everyone is on the take and that's just the way it is."


Good luck Tony on your crusade, I hope you start with your Boss and her family.
