IPOH, 12 May - The Islamic Religious Council and Malay Customs Perak (MAIPk) expressed their full support towards MACC’s efforts to combat corruption by pledging to the Corruption-Free Pledge today.
In line with the department’s duty to manage Islamic religious and Malay customs affairs, this initiative is taken as a sign of their commitment to hate and hinder from corruption and abuse of power.
In his opening speech, bin Mohamed, CEO of MAIPk, said that if an Islamic institution is involved in corruption, it will leave a dent in their image and bring negative impacts.
Meanwhile, Dato’ Hjh Nooraziah bt Abd Manaf, Director of MACC Perak, urges MAIPk to not only despise corruption but to have the strength and courage to reject it.
The pledging ceremony was led by Dr Amiruddin, followed by 73 staff from senior clerks and above as they are the key people in the administration.
Through this pledge, it is hoped that the responsibility to combat corruption does not only fall on MACC but is also shouldered by MAIPk by enhancing their administration and transparency to shut any opportunity for corruption.
