The Commission Against Corruption (CCAC, Comissariado contra a Corrupção in Portuguese) is an official entity of Macau responsible for the prevention, investigation and (probably) prosectution of corrupt activities. It was established in the Special Administrative Region in 1999 after China resumed sovereignty, pursuant to article 59 of its Basic Law and modelled after Hong Kong's Independent Commission Against Corruption.

The CCAC replaced the High Commission Against Corruption and Administrative Illegality created in 1990 and began operations in 1992.


According to Law no. 10/2000 of 14 August, the CCAC carries the following major statutory duties:

A list of heads of the two commissions:

High Commissioner Against Corruption and Administrative Illegality

HCACAI was appointed by the Governor of Macau.

Commissioners Against Corruption of Macau

The head of the CCAC is appointed by the Chief Executive of Macau.

Deputy Commissioners Against Corruption of Macau

This followed the resignation of the two former deputy commissioners, Tou Wai Fong and Chan Seak Hou, for "personal reasons" in December 2010.[1]


The Commission's headquarters is located at 105 Avenida Xian Xing Hai, Centro Golden Dragon (former Edifico Zhu Kuan), 17.o Andar.

History of Investigations

In November 2013, the CCAC releases an investigation and analysis report on complaints regarding the Granting of Public Service of Road Mass Transport.[2] The original complaint was received on May 30, 2013 and due to the filing of bankruptcy of Reolian on October 3, 2013, the CCAC released their findings. As one of the results of the report, lawmakers in Macau suggested Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Lau Si Io, to resign.[3]
