WE, members of G25, are heartened to see the rising tide of citizen initiatives taken by various groups to make Malaysians aware of the pernicious culture of corruption. This social evil has grown to be deeply entrenched in our society and poses a threat to our democracy and the economy.
We applaud the launching of the Anti-Corruption Revolution Movement and the 3J (Jangan Hulur, Jangan Kawtim, Jangan Settle) campaign to educate the public on the importance of integrity and honesty. The personal involvement of the new MACC Chief Commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad in these campaigns and his brave statements have set a sense of urgency and purpose in going after the corrupt. Our government must allow the MACC to charge those implicated, and the recent arrests are indicative of his commitment to live up to his words. These developments have contributed to raise public confidenc e in the fight against corruption.
