KUALA LUMPUR: The formation of the National Centre for Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption (GIACC) would help birth a Malaysian society of high integrity.
Integrity Institute of Malaysia (IIM) said this in a statement today which lauded Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for the formation of GIACC.
“Integriti (the Bahasa Malaysia acronym for IIM) is confident that these recent efforts would act as a comprehensive approach to give birth to a Malaysian society of high integrity.
“Integriti supports and gives cooperation as well as is ready to work together to implement government policies and programmes to ensure success of the agenda to strengthen integrity values as laid out under the National Integrity Plan (NIP),” it said.
IIM noted that the GIACC would help coordinate and monitor all governance, integrity and anti-corruption activities in the country.
It expressed hope that all quarters would continue to give strong backing to ensure the achievement of NIP’s aim and the institute’s vision more effectively.
The institute noted that on May 31, it had shared its input with the Institutional Reforms Committee (IRC) in regards to the Political Donations and Expenditure Act.
