But, investments of time, energy and finance to develop staff integrity in an organization must also be seen as important. Therefore, efforts involving integrity and prevention of corruption not only need to be implemented, but must be seen to be implemented.
“I view this matter as evidence and proof of the commitment shown by the leadership of the Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS) to strengthen the integrity of its staff.
“As the main agency to prevent corruption, the MACC is committed to implement enforcement, prevention and education measures to eradicate any forms of corruption and abuse of power as well as willing to collaborate with any party,” he said.
