Be our eyes and ears, graftbusters tell public

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malay­sian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) seeks to rope in the public to be its eyes and ears through its new anti-corruption campaign in collaboration with 7-Eleven.

MACC chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad said the programme dubbed Sahabat SPRM (Friend of MACC) sought to encourage the public to give tip-offs on corruption around them and educate them on how to file a report.

“We want to remind the public that MACC is their friend and only the corrupt should have reason to fear us,” he said when launching the programme at Berjaya Times Square here yesterday.

Posters with information on ways to contact the MACC would be placed in the 2,200-plus 7-Eleven convenience stores nationwide in this programme.

Meanwhile, on the MACC probe into the Melaka police force over an alleged protection racket of vice dens, Dzulkifli said the investigation was still ongoing.

“We are still looking for some suspects.

“We know some are in the country, while a few have fled abroad,” he told reporters.

More than a dozen individuals, including nine policemen, were detained to assist investigation into the case.
