In 1974, MacLehose founded Independent Commission Against Corruption of Hong Kong|ICAC, the Independent Commission Against Corruption. A mass petition by policemen against prosecutions was an example how bad the situation was. Eventually Hong Kong became one of the least corrupted societies in the world.
