SUNGAI PETANI – The Kedah government will make it compulsory for its 7,000 civil servants to register as Friends of the Anti-Corruption Revolution Movement (Gerah) under the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah said the move was to show the strong support and commitment by the entire state government to work with the MACC in fighting corruption and abuse of power.
“We have actually supported the efforts by the commission long time ago as the Kedah State Secretariat Office had taken the pledge to reject corruption,” he said in his speech at the signing of the Corruption-Free Pledge involving the local councils and state government civil servants here today.
Also present was MACC Chief Commissioner Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad.
Gerah is a social revolution movement which was introduced in May to change the minds, attitudes and views of the public on corruption and those accepting bribes, to hate such an act. – BERNAMA
