Burma's state-run newspaper says the government is urging people to report all possible cases of malpractice among workers in the Ministry of Energy.
"The New Light of Myanmar" reported today that if any worker in the ministry commits malpractice involving money, property, or even harassment, that person will be thoroughly investigated, then punished if an allegation is confirmed.
The article included the telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of officials in the ministry for citizens to call. Earlier this month, the Ministry of Home Affairs published similar information regarding malpractice issues.
Burma's military government has ruled the country with ruthless control since the 1960s. It is repeatedly criticized by human rights groups and countries, including the United States, for stifling freedom of expression and committing human rights abuses.
