The number of cases tackled by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) last year was the lowest in 32 years.
The bureau received 808 complaints – including some that were not related to corruption – down from 877 in 2015. Of these, 14.6 per cent were registered for investigation. This is the lowest number since 1984.
