KUCHING, 13 JULY - The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is ever ready to offer the Sarawak State Government its cooperation and advisory services and a system to implement asset declaration measures for the 82 State Assemblymen (ADUN).
MACC Chief Commissioner, Madam Latheefa Koya said that asset declaration is aimed at ensuring transparent administration and management.
“The proposal for the compulsory asset declaration has been approved by the Parliament; therefore, MACC will engage with every state to encourage the State Government to adopt similar principles and propose its implementation at the state level,” she said after her courtesy call on the Chief Minister of Sarawak, YAB Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg yesterday at Wisma Bapa Malaysia.
Madam Latheefa also added that Sarawak’s efforts to place an Integrity Officer at every department and agency, including at the Chief Minister’’s Office is a positive move and that the asset declaration would serve as natural continuity to that endeavour.
While visiting Sarawak, Madam Latheefa also visited the MACC Sarawak office and was briefed by the MACC Sarawak Director, Dep. Comm. Razim Mohd Noor, on the duties as well as all the activities undertaken.
Also in attendance were the Special Officer to the Chief Commissioner, Hairuzam Mohmad Amin @ Hamim and officers of MACC Sarawak.
