KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia’s top graft buster Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad says he and his team will weather the challenges, despite pressures faced by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
“I have said it before and I will say it again that I have a target until 2020 to reduce, or if possible, to eradicate malpractice, fraud and dishonesty among civil servants and the private sector,” the MACC chief commissioner told the press at the launch of Sahabat Gerah MACC at a hotel here on Tuesday.
Dzulkifli added that at present, the measures taken by MACC have been fruitful in getting public cooperation and on educating them of the ills of corruption.
“We want the public to hate bribery and be our eyes and ears to nip the problem in the bud.
“We will continue with the present system of enforcement and prevention until we become the most feared outfit in Malaysia,” he added.
The Gerah (Gerakan Revolusi Anti-Rasuah) campaign was launched in May is held on the first Monday of every month with MACC officers going to the ground.
Some 2,000 MACC officers nationwide have become “agents” of this initiative, and are tasked with meeting the people. – The Star Online
