A total of seven new members were appointed to the Special Committee on Corruption (SCC) by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong for a period of three years, effective from 15 July 2021 to 14 July 2024.
The appointment was on the advice of the Prime Minister in accordance with Section 14 of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009 (Act 694).
All the SCC members consisted of Members of the Senate and Members of the House of Representatives from both the government and opposition party.
The SCC is responsible to check the MACC Annual Report and advise the Prime Minister on various aspects regarding corruption issues in the country.
In addition, the SCC is also required to check the Anti-Corruption Advisory Board’s (ACAB) reviews on the functions of this commission based on the MACC Act 2009 as well as obtain clarification on the MACC Annual Report.
Hopefully with the appointment of the SCC, the members can help meet society’s expectations on the independence, efficiency, effectiveness, transparency, and accountability of this commission to fulfill its functions.
The appointment letters for SCC members were presented by the YAB Prime Minister, Tan Sri Dato’ Haji Mahiaddin Hj Md Yasin, witnessed by the MACC Chief Commissioner, Datuk Seri Azam Baki at the Parliament building, Kuala Lumpur, today.
