KUALA LUMPUR: The Hu­man Re­sources De­vel­op­ment Fund ( HRDF) takes all al­le­ga­tions made against the agency se­ri­ously and pledges its full co­op­er­a­tion with the Hu­man Re­source Min­istry and rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties.

In a state­ment is­sued here yes­ter­day, HRDF noted it was aware of the many al­le­ga­tions made on the so­cial me­dia on mis­ap­pro­pri­a­tion of funds, with the same al­le­ga­tions ap­pear­ing in the main­stream me­dia, as well.

“Due to such al­le­ga­tions, a town hall meet­ing was called on June 7, whereby HRDF Reg­is­tered Train­ing Providers were in­vited to meet and voice their con­cerns directly with Hu­man Re­source Min­is­ter M Ku­lasegaran.

“As a re­sult, the min­is­ter’s com­mit­ment was to set up an in­de­pen­dent panel to look into mat­ters raised as part of the ef­forts at pro­mot­ing trans­parency and ac­count­abil­ity,” it said.

The state­ment said it would con­tinue to ad­here to the prin­ci­ples of good gov­er­nance and wished to clar­ify its po­si­tion, clear the al­le­ga­tions as well as en­cour­ag­ing com­ments to be sent to official chan­nels for proper mea­sures to be taken.

“We as­sure levy con­trib­u­tors that their funds are se­cure and they can con­tinue to utilise their con­tri­bu­tion for the up­skilling, reskilling and mul­ti­skilling of their em­ploy­ees, ap­pren­tices and trainees,” it added. — Ber­nama
