JOHOR BARU: The signing of the Corruption-Free Pledge (IBR) by organisations and agencies is not a political gimmick, said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin.

He said the IBR was a great initiative introduced by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission to combat corruption in the country.

"I believe that the pledge serves as a reminder to all agencies and organisations to refrain from getting involved with corruption,” he said after a meeting with state-sponsored haj pilgrims.

“It is clear that the pledge is an initiative to invite all agencies and organisations to move towards a positive path and to prevent them from being involved with bribery, corruption and abuse of power,” he said.

On Apr 21, Khaled, nine state executive councillors and three ex-officio signed the pledge.

PKR secretary-general Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail recently claimed that the IBR was a gimmick to get the attention of the media.
