PUTRAJAYA: The Anti-Corruption Advisory Board (LPPR) has given its full support to the move to curb corruption among politicians through anti-hopping and political funding laws, says Tan Sri Abu Zahar Ujang.

He said that such laws will bring political stability to the country.

"As an independent monitoring body, the LPPR will continue to monitor, review, advise and propose amendments for improvements to ensure the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) achieves its mission of a corruption-free country,” said the Board chairman.

Abu Zahar added that the MACC is in the midst of examining all standard operating procedures related to integrity as part of a way to improve and avoid untoward incidents.

He also said that the MACC's Complaints Committee (JKA) had also proposed 31 recommendations on work procedures, including non-compliance in handling case items as well as weaknesses in handling documents.

Abu Zahar added that the 31 recommendations also included the examination of investigating procedures as well as logistical needs.

He also said that the JKA was put in charge by the MACC to deal with complaints of misconduct made against MACC officials that are not criminal in nature.

Abu Zahar added that the JKA is also responsible for identifying weaknesses and addressing working procedures of the commission that could cause complaints as well as proposals and recommendations for proper working procedures of the MACC.

He added that the MACC has also formed a special internal affairs branch as part of an effort to detect, probe, and take stern action against any officers suspected of being involved in crime.

Abu Zahar also said that the MACC guarantees that it will not remain quiet about such matters, and had taken steps that includes monitoring the wealth of officers, verifying the authenticity of wealth declarations, drug tests and cases of high debts as well as dealing with problematic officers as reported by the directors from the divisions and states.

"In this matter, the LPPR will continue to monitor the latest development surrounding related issues and give its feedback in the commission together with officers who has high moral and integrity," added Abu Zahar.
