ALOR SETAR, 3 Feb – Mr. Haji Roslan Rani, Director of the Forestry Department Kedah, paid a courtesy call on Dato' Shaharom Nizam Abd Manap, Director of MACC Kedah today. This courtesy call aimed to strengthen the relations between the two departments, as the Malay proverb says, "yang bulat tidak datang menggolek, yang pipih tidak datang melayang" (the round ones do not come rolling, the flat ones do not come flying), which means that something good cannot simply be achieved without effort.
In this meeting, Dato' Shaharom Nizam explained the functions of MACC Kedah and discussed potential cooperation in the effort to eradicate corruption, particularly amongst employees. Among the programmes suggested were collaborative programmes such as Joint Operations, Inter-department Sports and Corruption-Free Pledge (IBR).
At the end of the meeting, Dato' Shaharom Nizam presented a souvenir to Mr. Roslan Rani as a token of appreciation for his support and commitment. This meeting is hoped to lead to continuous collaborative effort in preventing corruption in Kedah alongside MACC to ensure Malaysia is clean from corruption.
