Penang government ready to work with MACC to ensure corrupted officers are dealt with severely: CM Kon Yeow

Press Statement by YAB Chow Kon Yeow, Chief Minister of Penang
Komtar, George Town, 30 September 2022:

Penang welcomes MACC’s investigation of the crime of corruption involving civil servants in the state as this is in line with the CAT principles of good governance; competency, accountability and transparency practised since 2008.

No one is above the law and civil servants, whether from Federal, state or local authorities and agencies, found to be involved in accepting bribes, abuse of power and making false claims must be investigated and charged as soon as possible. 

At the same time, the Penang State Government wants MACC to be transparent in revealing the number of cases brought to the courts and the number of civil servants found guilty.

We demand transparency on the part of MACC as we do not want the image of Penang civil servants and the state government to be tarnished only by account of the number of complaints received since 2019.

The Penang State Government is ready to work with MACC to ensure that officers involved in corrupt practices be dealt with severely.

2022年9月30日于乔治市光大发表文告:

槟州欢迎马来西亚反贪污委员会对州内涉及贪腐的公务员展开调查,因为这符合了槟州政府自2008年倡导的“能干、 问责与透明”(CAT)理念。

任何人都不能凌驾于法律之上,无论是来自联邦、州还是地方政府当局和机构的公务员,一旦被发现参与收受贿赂、滥用权力和作出虚报,都必须在第一时间接受调查和起诉。

同时,槟州政府希望反贪会透明披露提交法院的案件数量以及被判有罪的公务员数量。

我们要求反贪会方面保持透明度,因为我们不希望槟州的公务员和州政府的形象仅因为自2019年以来所收到的投诉数量而受损。

槟州政府准备与反贪会合作,确保涉及贪污行为的官员受到严惩。
