Transparency International Malaysia Lauds Call To Emulate PDRM's Integrity Initiatives

KUALA LUMPUR, July 17 (Bernama) -- Transparency International - Malaysia (TI-M) lauded the call made by the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) for selected enforcement agencies to emulate Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) initiatives whereby good ethics is a key thrust in performance evaluation and promotion.

TI-M President, Datuk Akhbar Satar in a statement Thursday said TI-M extended its hands to Pemandu to work together to raise awareness and advocate intergrity and corruption-free enforcement agencies in Malaysia.

"It is important for Pemandu to introduce a range of measures to improve the integrity and transparency of the police force," he added.

Akhbar said, TI-M would also like to congratulate Pemandu for being one of the world's top 20 leading government innovation team as reported by Bloomberg Philantrophies & Nesta, UK innovation foundations.

Recently Pemandu's Director of the Anti-Corruption National Key Results Area Ravindran Devagunam proposed to other key enforcement agencies to begin implementing initiatives that promote integrity in their respective agencies.

He said this when commenting on a statement by Bukit Aman federal traffic police chief, SAC Mohd Fuad Abd Latiff that a letter of commendation would be given to a policeman who rejected a bribe.

Earlier, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar was reported to have said an integrity test would be imposed on all new police recruits.
