Mandatory to report corruption

I REFER to “MACC has not reached out to Wan Saiful over allegations involving RM1.7mil allocation, says Azam Baki” (The Star, Feb 29), in which Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki said: “Ideally, under Section 25(1) of the MACC Act 2009, the person who is offered or given or promised a bribe should come forward to lodge a report either at the nearest police station or our office.”

In fact, Section 25(1) of the MACC Act makes it mandatory for any person to whom any “gratification is given, promised, or offered... to report such gift, promise or offer together with the name, if known, of the person who gave, promised or offered such gratification to him to the nearest officer of the commission or police officer.”
