SERDANG – Over 10,000 motor sports fans from Malaysia and Singapore took the Corruption-Free Pledge as a show of support to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) efforts to combat corruption and abuse of power in the country.
The motor sports fans from 100 motor sports club who rode motorcycles of various engine capacities took the pledge in a ‘Himpunan Dua Roda’ (H2R) programme held at the Malaysian Agricultural Expo Site (Maeps) here today.
MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad said the cooperation established with the motorcycle community was crucial as the bikers, who were often labelled as illegal motorcycle racers or ‘Mat Rempit’, were exposed to corruption and power abuse when trying to avoid enforcement action taken by the authorities.
“We are trying to instil a change in attitude to avoid corrupt practices. The H2R gathering reflects the need for the future generation of youths to be brave and spirited in bringing about change and combatting corruption.
“Do not feel fear in this cause as MACC is constantly together with you in bringing about change. You are road warriors who will be MACC’s eyes and ears in the fight against corruption and power abuse,” Dzulkifli told reporters after the launching of the maiden H2R: Bikers Reject Corruption 1.0 programme.
In the event, Dzulkifli also launched two campaigns, namely ‘Revolusi 3J (Do not offer, Do not negotiate and do not settle) (Jangan Hulur, Jangan Kawtim dan Jangan Settle) as well as ‘Street Warriors Against Corruption (SWAC). – BERNAMA
