MACC monitoring suspected corruption within enforcement agencies at Kelantan-Thai border

KOTA BARU: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has seen an increase this year in the number of tip-offs over suspected corruption activities involving enforcement agencies stationed along the Kelantan/Thai border.
MACC chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad said the information on various types of alleged corruption and other wrongdoings were provided by members of the public, as well as intelligence units.
Dzulkifli did not disclose the offences, but said MACC are monitoring the situation closely.
Corruption along the border, he said, is a serious issue if left unchecked as it could lead to the rise in activities such as firearms and drugs smuggling.
Dzulkifli said the commission is confident of curbing the corruption menace involving enforcement agencies at the border, despite having only 40 MACC officers in Kelantan.
"It cannot be denied that our manpower is not enough, given that there are 80,000 government staff in the state. But this will not stop my men from going all out to tackle the problem,” he said.
He was speaking to reporters after witnessing a corruption-free pledge signing involving departments and agencies of both state and Federal governments here.
Also present were state secretary Datuk Mohd Faudzi Che Mamat and Kelantan Federal Development Department director Yahaya Mamat.
About 250 department and agency heads took part in the ceremony.
