The primary purpose of the amendment is to give the Commission greater powers to fight corruption.

The amendment to the Act will give the Commission the same rights, powers, authority, privileges and immunity as are already available to the Police to detect, prevent and investigate offences under the Act.

The Amendment will also enable the Commission itself to undertake prosecution for corrupt practices.
