The editor was quite right to point out in his Point of Order column on Monday that business is unfairly blamed for half the corruption problems in this country (Takes two? Not when one calls the shots, November 13).

In fact, most of the loot plundered from state-owned enterprises and government departments seems to be paid into special-purpose vehicles set up to receive the stolen money and then transfer it to other companies set up to launder the money.

These special companies do not represent business in any way.

Instead they should be seen as part of the organised crime problem and dealt with accordingly by the Asset Forfeiture Unit and other crime-busting arms of government.
