‘Govt won’t protect corrupt enforcement agencies’
CANBERRA: The Home Ministry will not compromise with any enforcement agency found protecting illegal gambling activities and prostitution.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the ministry would give its cooperation in fighting graft involving enforcement agencies.
He was responding to the revelation by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad that MACC had proof that there were enforcement agencies which were protecting gambling and prostitution syndicates, which offered bribes of RM1.2 million per month.
Dzulkifli had said documentary evidence were found during the ‘Op Ledger’ exercise recently.
Zahid, who is also home minister, said the ministry would give its full support to the MACC in combating corruption.
“If it is true... the police and Home Ministry will definitely cooperate with MACC and support its enforcement actions.”
Zahid said this while on a working visit to Australia. Bernama
