MACC calls for integrity unit in office of menteri besar, chief minister

Last Update: 26/08/2019

KUALA TERENGGANU, Aug 26 (Bernama) -- The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has urged all states to establish an integrity unit in the office of the menteri besar or chief minister in an effort to check corruption or irregularities.

MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya said today that so far only Sarawak has set up the State Integrity and Ombudsman Unit (UNION).

“I hope all the states will emulate Sarawak in avoiding any criticism (against the highest state government administration) and initiate the process of administrative transparency.

“This is because the potential for corruption is greater at the state level than the federal level because the states have more access to various resources such as logging and land-related matters,” she told reporters after a dialogue with government-linked companies and the Terengganu hotel industry, here.

Latheefa said the MACC will place a senior officer in the Integrity Unit of the Office of the Menteri Besar or Chief Minister to ensure transparency in governance.
