EAIC investigated 17 cases of civil service malpractice in past 12 months

SEPANG: Some 17 investigation papers have been opened by the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission (EAIC) over malpractices by civil servants between June 1, 2023 and May 31, 2024.

Of the number, almost 90% of investigations have been completed, revealed EAIC operations director Mohd Asnawi Abu Hanipah.

Decisions had already been made towards two of the individuals involved in the papers.

Among the commission’s recommended follow-up actions were to terminate said individual’s services, halt any promotions and also the issuance of warnings.

He also revealed that EAIC received 229 reports on integrity cases between June 1, 2023 to May 31, 2024, with the highest number of cases related to the Immigration Department.

The EAIC is the federal statutory body responsible for monitoring and investigating the public complaints of misconduct of enforcement officers or agencies as listed in the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission Act 2009 (Act 700).

Currently, there are 21 enforcement agencies under its supervision.

This includes the Immigration Department, Customs Department, Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, National Registration Department and Road Transport Department, among others.

At a press conference later, EAIC chairman Tan Sri Ismail Bakri said they were also proposing to increase the number of agencies supervised by the EAIC.

“We are also working to include new agencies and those not under the supervision of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and Royal Malaysia Police.

“This ensures there is no compromise towards integrity issues,” he said.
