KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed (pic) has been conferred the Darjah Seri Paduka Mahkota Brunei Yang Amat Mulia Darjah Kedua (D.P.M.B.) award by the Sultan of Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah in conjunction with the Ruler’s birthday.
He received the award, which carries the title Datuk Paduka, at Istana Nurul Iman in Bandar Seri Begawan yesterday.
Abu Kassim said in a statement that he regarded the award as a form of appreciation towards the people and the Malaysian Government, as well as the MACC and himself.
“I am confident that the awarding of the DPMB will further strengthen the existing relations and cooperation between the MACC and the Corruption Prevention Bureau (CPB) of Brunei Darussalam and the bilateral relations between our two countries,” he said.
The cooperation network between the two agencies in the last nine years, he said, had been fully utilised to discuss the sharing of investigation methods and the positive transformation in strengthening the capabilities of anti-corruption agencies, especially in matters involving cross-boundary crimes.
“The cooperation of MACC and CPB has attracted attention in the evaluation report of the United Nations Office On Drugs And Crime in which its success has been reported as among the good practices by MACC in enforcing the law to combat corruption,” said Abu Kassim. — Bernama
