Selangor Ruler issues stern warning to state govt officers about corrupt conduct

KLANG: Selangor Ruler Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah has issued a stern warning to those in the state administration allegedly mired in dishonest and corrupt conduct.

In a press statement signed by his private secretary Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani, Sultan Sharafuddin said corrupt state officials should be duly dealt with.

“His Highness stressed that disciplinary action and appropriate punishment must be initiated against any official in the Selangor state government found guilty of graft and breach of trust,’’ said Mohamad Munir.

Sultan Sharafuddin also warned that state awards given to government officials and politicians found guilty of graft will be revoked.

The Ruler said he was saddened when informed recently that several officials in the Selangor state government were involved in corruption as this could damage the administration’s image as well the reputation of the state government's servants.

Sultan Sharafuddin also thanked the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for carrying out its responsibilities diligently by investigating and ensuring graft activities in Selangor are eradicated.

“His Highness urged the MACC to continue investigating in a transparent and thorough manner to obtain strong evidence so that those involved in corruption do not escape from being appropriately punished,’’ said the statement.

Sultan Sharafuddin also reminded that graft and abuse of power was a symptom that could destroy society as well as destroy the nation.

The royal rebuke and warning comes in the wake of some incriminating allegations involving some politicians as well as top-ranking state officials.
