MACC committed to implementing King’s decree with utmost integrity

PUTRAJAYA, April 2 — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is committed to fully implementing the decree of His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, the King of Malaysia, and will fulfil this responsibility with the utmost integrity.

MACC Chief Commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki said the agency respects the King’s decree that combating corruption, the nation’s number one enemy, is a top priority during His Majesty’s reign.

“His Majesty’s order reflects his firmness in combating corruption and should be upheld by every layer of society because a corruption-free populace is crucial for the integrity and stability of the nation.

“In light of this, as the anti-corruption enforcement agency, the MACC pledges to fully implement the King’s decree and uphold this duty with the highest integrity,” he said in a statement today.

Azam also hopes all Malaysians, especially the government machinery, will support and implement the King’s decree alongside the MACC.

Yesterday, Sultan Ibrahim said the ‘honeymoon period’ since acceding to the throne had ended, and in a Facebook post, the King shared a photo of handing over honey to Azam as a symbolic end to the period.
