Anti-Corruption Day

International Anti-Corruption Day was marked across the country Tuesday, with many calling for harsher sentences and the seizure of graft convict's assets. Anti-graft activists say that light prison terms are partly to blame for the lack of deterrent effect, with the majority of defendants – particularly those with political connections – receiving only around 1-2 years and waking free with their ill-gotten gains in only a fraction of this time thanks to generous remissions and early releases for 'good behaviour'.
