Hong Kong's graft watchdog needs to set good example

Credibility and integrity are the foremost qualities we expect of our law enforcers. Anything short of the highest standards can undermine confidence in their work. For those charged with fighting bribery, expectations are even higher. Regrettably, the former chief of the Independent Commission Against Corruption has let down the public with questionable spending and practices. The stakes are high given the commission's role as a graft buster. It is imperative to find out the scale of the problem and prevent a reoccurrence.
