The folks from SIC (Sepang International Circuit) showed their support for Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) Corruption Free Pledge (Ikrar Bebas Rasuah) yesterday with the official pledge signing ceremony yesterday at the world-renowned circuit.
The pledge focuses on promoting zero-tolerance on corruption and signing major parties into the declaration also showcases that corruption is a huge offence, no matter what you do in life. The ceremony was attended by a number of high-profile members of MACC as well as SIC, which include the likes of Dato’ Razlan Razali, CEO of SIC, TPj. Haji Razim Mohd Noor, Director of MACC Community Education Division, and many more.
According to Mr Samsul Salip, MACC’s of Branch for Socio-Culture and Politics, “Fighting and combating corruption is not the exclusive responsibility of MACC per se; on the other hand, it is the collective duty and responsibility of all members of society, particularly those serving in government agencies, to achieve a nation free from all forms of corruption and abuse of power.”
“There are almost 6,000 cases reported to MACC however only 1,300 cases are related to corruptions. Publics mostly misinterpret about MACC’s jurisdiction. MACC can only carry out the investigation, we don’t have the power to charge any party or organizations. It will fall under the Attorney General of Malaysia,” added Mr Samsul.
As for Dato’ Razlan Razali, “This is our commitment to make sure we are free from any form of corruption. SIC practice good governance, professionalism, and work with integrity. This is what I practice, we practice and the board practice.”
