SOME 100 journalists from 20 media organisations took time off over the weekend to foster closer ties with several enforcement agencies.

The annual get-together was organised by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in conjunction with its 52nd anniversary this year.

Held at the Malaysia Prison College shooting range in Kajang, it also included a friendly shooting competition.

While media personnel took the opportunity to fire some shots using Glock semi-auto pistols, MACC officers challenged their guests comprising the police and wardens to target shooting.

In her speech, MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya thanked all parties for making the programme a success.

“This event can assist our officers to release stress from their heavy workload.“It is also a good platform to foster ties, exchange ideas and strengthen partnerships among enforcement officers,” she said.

Latheefa also lauded the media organisations for assisting the MACC to spread the message and fight against corruption and abuse of power.

She said public support was vital to ensure that the MACC and other enforcement agencies could carry out their responsibilities without fear or favour.

Present were Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador, MACC deputy chief commissioner (operations) Datuk Seri Azam Baki, Malaysia Prison College director Datuk Narander Singh and other senior officers.

The Star was represented by news editor Zulkifli Abdul Rahman and deputy news editor Simon Khoo.
