Malaysia Must be Known for its Integrity, Not Corruption
GIACC has proposed to the Special Cabinet Committee on Anti-Corruption (JKKMAR) that ministers should undertake these five anti-corruption measures at their ministries as part of the National Anti-Corruption Plan (NCAP).
These five measures are:
- Ensuring that administrative staff within ministries declare their assets to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission
- Pledging to create and enforce a gift policy at their ministries
- Enforcing an anti-corruption plan at their ministries
- Holding meetings to improve governance, integrity and anti-corruption measures at ministerial level, with ministers to chair meetings at least twice a year, and
- Improving transparency in public procurement and reducing opportunities for bribes by ensuring that the details of parties who successfully bid for open tenders approved by the ministry’s procurement authorities are published on the myProcurement portal.
Ensure offenders are punished appropriately.
Ensure we are recognised for our clean image and high integrity based on the international governance indices such as Corruption Perception Index (CPI) and the Global Corruption Barometer (GCB)
3 September 2019 – Several Sarawak DAP leaders met MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya today and submitted new evidence on graft cases in the state. This comes after Latheefa pledged in July to review ‘no further action’ (NFA) cases involving VVIPs in Selangor, Penang and Sarawak. According to Pandungan assemblyperson and Sarawak DAP vice-president Wong King Wei, information and evidence were submitted to the MACC for further action during the meeting today.
C4 – The submission of evidence of graft cases by Sarawak DAP leaders to the MACC should be seen as a rallying call for further action in the state which has been tarnished by allegations of wrongdoing by former Chief Minister Taib Mahmud. Hopefully with this new evidence and the MACC under the strong leadership of Latheefa Koyah will elevate the nation’s Corruption Perception Index (CPI) and standing on the Global Corruption Barometer (GCB).
10 May 2019 – After years of resisting calls for an independent oversight body, police today agreed to the establishment of the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC).
