PM praises MACC, cops for acting without fear or favour

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has expressed his appreciation to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and police for being courageous in taking firm action against anyone, regardless of their rank or status.

Anwar said this indirectly reflects the country’s commitment to good governance and combating corruption and drugs, by ensuring that no one could escape investigation and action by the authorities.

“We have shown the kind of determination seldom seen in other countries, what more developing nations. The authorities have acted against personalities considered immune from any form of investigation and action.

“If you steal national funds, rob the country of its wealth, whether you are the prime minister, finance minister, we have to act firmly to save the country,” he said.

The prime minister said this when launching the Central Database Hub, or PADU, at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC) here.
