Let public join in fight against corruption, C4 tells MACC

Cynthia-Gabriel-_sprm_600The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has been urged to provide the public with more information regarding important individuals suspected of being involved in corruption.

Centre to Combat Corruption & Cronyism (C4) executive director Cynthia Gabriel said at the moment, the information available to the public is limited.

“Let them be your ‘eyes and ears’,” Gabriel said in asking for the MACC to give more information and give the public the chance to play a more practical role in combating corruption.

“We support MACC’s effort to combat corruption especially among the civil service. But we want MACC to give more information to the public, as much as possible.

“This is so they can be more sensitive towards issues of power abuse, corruption, and leakages. Now, we only know who is arrested, but nothing else until they (the MACC) decide to take the case to court,” she told FMT.

Cynthia’s comments come following a series of high-profile arrests that the anti-graft agency have been conducting since last year.

The individuals arrested range from senior civil servants, state and federal government officials, politicians, and even those with a Tan Sri title.

Just this week, a former MIC vice-president was arrested for corruption, and a Tan Sri was also detained allegedly for attempting to bribe the Sultan of Johor, to seek the “Tan Sri” title for a willing buyer.

Cynthia expressed hope that MACC would not be restricted in its actions, especially in the investigations involving corrupt politicians.

“No offender should be allowed to hide behind the law,” she said.
