New JPJ chief: We’ll act against errant officers

KUALA LUMPUR: The Road Transport Department (JPJ) will not compromise when it comes to taking action against any personnel involved in wrongdoings.

Newly appointed JPJ director-general Datuk Zailani Hashim said integrity among its personnel will be a priority.

“I hope to elevate the department’s positive image to a higher level and improve the aspect of integrity among our personnel.

“We will do so without forsaking collaboration with other enforcement departments and agencies, ” he said in a statement yesterday.

He paid a courtesy call to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki on Monday.

The department will also have an open door policy and welcomes any recommendation by the public, Zailani said.

“This is to improve the department’s effectiveness in the delivery of its service to the people, ” he added.

Meanwhile, Azam said the MACC welcomes the aims of the JPJ.

“We will cooperate closely through the placement of a Certified Integrity Officer in JPJ’s Integrity division.

“Strategic cooperation between the two departments was established a long time ago through joint operations such as Ops Clone Cars and on driving test scams, ” he said.

Both parties also agreed to review their note of cooperation, established in 2017, towards improving and strengthening relations between the two departments.
