‘Take up in­cen­tive’

New Straits Times - - News -

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.
