MACC vows to carry out King’s command to fight graft


PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has pledged to carry out the command of His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, King of Malaysia, to fight corruption.

Chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki said the MACC will do its utmost to carry out its duties in line with His Majesty’s command.

“The MACC upholds the command by His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim who announced that fighting corruption, the country’s number one enemy, would be a major focus during his reign.

“The orders of His Majesty portray the firmness of His Majesty to battle the threat of corruption, a battle which must be carried out by every level of the community,” Azam said in a statement yesterday.

He said that a community free from corruption is a measure and the core of the wholeness and stability of a country.

“In line with that, as the authoritative agency in charge of battling corruption in the country, the MACC will ensure the orders of His Majesty be carried out fully and with integrity.

“The MACC also hopes that all Malaysians, especially the government machinery, will not make any compromise and work together with the MACC in upholding and carrying out His Majesty’s command,” said Azam.

On Monday, Sultan Ibrahim granted a 30-minute audience to Azam at Istana Negara in Kuala Lumpur to discuss the latest developments in the enforcement agency.

“As I emphasised before, my honeymoon is over, now go catch the bees,” His Majesty said, while handing over honey to Azam to symbolise the end of the “honeymoon” period.
