New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: Umno wel­comes the Malaysian Anti-Cor­rup­tion Com­mis­sion’s (MACC) state­ment that it needed the party’s help in the war against graft.

Umno Supreme Coun­cil mem­ber Datuk Seri Dr Ir­mo­hizam Ibrahim said the party would sup­port the war against cor­rup­tion.

“Umno will an­swer and sup­port the ef­forts against graft.

“The Anti-Cor­rup­tion Rev­o­lu­tion Move­ment (Gerah) will be up­held by Umno.

“It is not only an ef­fec­tive pre­ven­tion mech­a­nism, but it can also be the eyes and ears in weed­ing cor­rup­tion in other par­ties,” he said.

Un­der the newly-launched Gerah, 2,000 MACC of­fi­cers na­tion­wide will be­come “agents” of the ini­tia­tive and are tasked with meet­ing the peo­ple.

By form­ing such re­la­tion­ships with the pub­lic, MACC hopes peo­ple will as­sist the com­mis­sion in erad­i­cat­ing cor­rup­tion.
