KUALA LUMPUR: The Sultan of Perak, Sultan Nazrin Shah, said today corruption must be addressed with determination by the various agencies responsible without fear or favour.
It is feared that failure to combat and eradicate corruption with seriousness and commitment could cripple the country and the people as a whole, he said.
“Corruption is a cancer that is said to be spreading in the country; corruption is like termites eating into the main pillars of the country.
“Misconduct must be reported without bias, without fear, without favouritism because corruption is corruption no matter who commits it,” he said at the Utusan Business Awards 2015 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre here.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s mother Tun Rahah Mohammad Noah and Utusan Group chairman Datuk Mohamad Fatmi Che Salleh were also present at the event.
