PUTRAJAYA, Oct 16 – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is in the final stage of finalising the list of ministries based on its placing in terms of corruption and abuse of power, prior to announcing it by the end of Nov.
MACC Deputy Chief Commissioner (Prevention) Datuk Shamsun Baharin Mohd Jamil said at the moment, the ranking list was waiting to be submitted to MACC Chief Commissioner Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad.
“The list has been completed by a committee of experts involved but has yet to be submitted to the chief commissioner,” he said in his speech at the Corruption-Free Pledge (IBR) by the Federal Territories Ministry (KWP) employees here today.
According to previous media reports, the ranking list to be announced by the MACC comprises 10 most problematic ministries and five cleanest in terms of corruption and abuse of power.
Shamsun Baharin said KWP was the 18th ministry to sign the IBR and the MACC hoped that all 25 ministries and Selangor state government would sign the pledge by the end of this year. “All state governments have signed the IBR pledge except Selangor,” he said.
A total of 320 KWP employees, led by its secretary-general Datuk Seri Adnan Md Ikhsan signed the pledge today. Also present was Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk Dr Loga Bala Mohan. — Bernama
