MACC has nabbed 3,056 civil servants for corruption since 2015, Parliament told

KUALA LUMPUR: A total of 3,056 civil servants have been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) for corrupt practices from 2015 until September this year, says de facto Law Minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar(pic).

He said in the same period, the MACC received 30,679 complaints, from which 3,357 investigation papers were opened.

"Based on investigations during the same period, 3,056 arrests were made, 1,159 charged in court and 567 convicted," said Wan Junaidi in a written reply dated Nov 25.

For charges brought, there were 168 civil servants charged in court with corruption in 2019; 140 in 2018; 256 in 2020; and 208 until September this year.

Wan Junaidi said Putrajaya is addressing the issue of corruption involving civil servants through its National Anti-Corruption Plan (NACP), a four-year roadmap from 2019 to 2023 to facilitate the civil service sector to develop anti-graft measures.

Wan Junaidi was responding to Gobind Singh Deo (PH-Puchong), who asked how many civil servants had been arrested for corruption from 2015 and Putrajaya's measures to address this issue.
