All 60 Sabah Assemblymen Sign “Aku Janji” To Support Fight Against Corruption


(Borneo Post) – All the 60 Sabah state assemblymen today signed the “Aku Janji” (I Promise) as a mark of their commitment and support towards corruption prevention.

This made Sabah the first state with assemblymen from both sides of the political divide signing the pledge.

The signing was witnessed by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed at the State Legislative Assembly building, here.

Abu Kassim said the approach was in line with the MACC’s strategy of enhancing cooperation with political parties and non-governmental organisations towards effective corruption prevention.

He said the commitment to fighting corruption involved leaders’ seriousness in passing and enforcing a regulation or law, becoming role models for the country’s echelon political leaders, upholding integrity in administration, being transparent in managing funds, not politicising the corruption issue to fish for public support and votes, and being sincere in helping the MACC fight corruption by trusting and supporting its actions.
