created a need for further examination of this subject matter. The next chapter will look into theories involving the likelihood a person/law officer can become corrupt. Factoring in PTSD in with theories creates a phenomenon that police work creates the foundation for corruption. Although the upcoming appendix will show police stressors, many researchers have agreed that police stressors and corruption are methodological errors and no directly a result of the job demands. Police stress research has offered a diverse look into personality characteristics.
In the other hand Locke said that the purpose of a government should be to secure natural rights, namely man property and liberty. He favored a representative government such as the English Parliament, but he wanted that the representatives be only men of property and business. Both believed in a type of social contract between the government and the ones governed. Locke's social contract was government by the consent of those being governed, which is why he was the prime philosopher that Thomas Jefferson looked to when drafting the Declaration of
Usually, these mistakes could be attributed to the mistakes in leadership of particular party leaders, although the Communist International also played a role. After 1949, participation of other political parties made for a temporarily democratic atmosphere, which prevented expansion of the leftism of certain central party leaders. In 1956, when the Three Big Transformations that aimed to convert the country from New Democratic to Socialistic were completed, opponents emerged, mainly consisting of intellectuals and the petty bourgeoisie. Also, after Stalin’s death, Khrushchev came to power and fiercely criticized Stalinism. All of these factors, in Mao’s mind, threatened his sacrosanct leadership
Do haven’t been created effective mechanisms to combat corruption, but on the contrary were created mechanisms which give the certainty of impunity, one System of Impunity in the three constituted powers, Executive, Legislative and Judicial. In 24 years, all forms of sophistry were used to sell to the people, by advertising, marketing, the idea that corruption is being combated. The main excuse that in 1992 free proof accusations were made is a fallacy that has been accepted uncritically: complaints were made, and they do not require proof, only clues. The move of history proves that the complaints contained admissible and actual
1. SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY A primary reason for concern regarding ethics in local government is that the lack of it has the ability to reduce public trust and confidence in the integrity and impartiality of both elected public officials and government itself. In this respect, the existence of unethical conduct can be as damaging as actual unethical conduct. Once, in discussing his code of conduct, President J.F. Kennedy (in Frier 1969:3-4) remarked that even though a technical conflict of interest may not exist, it is desirable to avoid the appearance of such a conflict from a public confidence point of view.
“The MRTP Act has become obsolete in certain areas in the light of international economic developments relating to competition laws. We need to shift our focus from curbing monopolies to promoting competition. The Government has decided to appoint a committee to examine this range of issues and propose a modern competition law suitable for our conditions.” The Raghavan Committee was constituted to recommend a suitable legislative framework relating to competition law for the country. It was felt that although the MRTP Act seemingly had provisions regulating anti-competitive practices, in comparison with competition laws of many countries it was inadequate for promoting competition in the market trade and for reducing, if not eliminating, anticompetitive practices in the country’s domestic and international trade. One of the biggest failings of the MRTP Act was the inadequacy of MRTP Act to provide adequate remedy to complainants.
Corruption undermines democracy and governance The concept of the public trust relates back to the origins of democratic government and its idea that within the public lays the true power and future of a society. Citizens elect the ones they found most suited and the trust they place in its officials must therefore be respected. Vote buying at elections harms the democratic process and justices are challenged, when people are able to bribe their way out of trouble. Anti- Corruption Policy It is our policy to conduct business in an honest and ethical manner. We are committed to acting professionally, fairly, and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships wherever we operate and implementing and enforcing effective systems to counter corruption and bribery.
Constitutional law expert, Dr. Abdul Aziz Bari states that the doctrine of ministerial responsibility is important as it stands at the very heart of the cabinet system. It is the doctrine that keeps the cabinet together so as to make it easier for the Parliament to make the government of the day accountable as the people’s representatives. 2.0 Doctrine of Ministerial Responsibility The doctrine of ministerial responsibility consists of two fundamental pillars, which is the collective ministerial responsibility and the individual ministerial responsibility. 2.1 Individual Ministerial

Protection of rule of law includes determined legal system that revert back problems and grieves in a fair, non discriminatory and efficient manner. But violations of law happen every day and rule of powerful people, be it bureaucrats, businesspersons etc, is able to overcome justice administration due to corruption. This is a strong reason of political influence which undermines the objective of criminal and constitutional justice system and all judicial processes. The impact of corruption on rule of law and justice administration can be understood by chain of cause and effect relationship. First there is a cause that there is an extensive disregard for the law and the justice administration i.e.
