KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) in its continuous effort to fight corruption has reportedly become the leading enforcement agency in providing information to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

With the reports lodged by PDRM, the commission has managed to bring to book corruption cases amounting to RM1.3mil in bribe offers.

Since the launch of the MACC campaign “Let’s Make A Difference – Fight Corruption” in April, PDRM has reported 173 cases.

MACC corporate communications director Datuk Ahmad Khusairi Yahaya said the figure showed PDRM’s dedication in working together with the Commission to fight corruption.

The Road Transport Department (JPJ) provided information that led to 23 cases which involved a total of RM9,970 in bribe offers. Tenaga Nasional Bhd had 17 cases involving RM230,000. The Immigration had 14 cases involving RM45,120 and Volunteers of Malaysian People (Rela) 13 cases involving RM20,550.

“It is hoped that all the enforcement agencies which had pledged to fight corruption will continuously fight corruption especially against the givers to deter them from any breach of law and regulation, and to curb corruption,” Ahmad Khusairi said.

“Civil servants who have been offered bribes should not only refrain from taking gratification but come forward to lodge a report against the giver,” he added. “The campaign is meant to educate the public to be a law and regulation abi­ding citizen and refrain from offering bribe to enforcement officers.”
