Upgrading Democracy: ‘Soft Laws’ and The Ombudsman

Written by Roy Lee 11 October 2017

"This paper makes an argument for the establishment of the Office of the Ombudsman in Malaysia" which would "take on the crucial role of investigating and resolving disputes between citizens and public officials, investigating maladministration, corruption, abuse of power, and the misappropriation of public funds. The Ombudsman would also complement the efforts of other anti-corruption enforcement agencies as well as provide additional checks and balances to our current system" (Lee 2017).
