‘Take up incentive’
PETALING JAYA: Civil servants are encouraged to take up the incentives available to them if they report on corruption.
Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission deputy chief Datuk Shamsun Baharin Mohd Jamil said the take-up rate had been discouragingly piecemeal.
He said statistics showed only 0.0001 per cent of the estimated 1.6 million civil servants had reported on corruption between 2011 and last year.
The 162 civil servants who reported on corruption had received their incentives.
He said the number was low, considering that the government had offered them ringgit-to-ringgit incentives.
He was speaking after launching and witnessing the Corruption-Free Pledge (Ikrar Bebas Rasuah) by Malaysian Qualifications Agency officers.
