Establish Integrity Unit To Monitor Civil Servant Misconduct

SHAH ALAM, 27th AUGUST: In a concentrated effort to cultivate high-quality work culture and strong ethics in governance, the State Government has established an Integrity Unit (IU) to counter any form of misconducts and criminal behaviour among civil servants.

Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the special unit is going to be tasked by the Secretary of State, under the supervision of YB Dato’ Haji Mohammed Khusrin bin Haji Munawi. Two officers of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) have been assigned to the unit.

“Our working relationship with the MACC is ongoing. This cooperation is going to help us monitor and prevent corruption and abuse of power,” said Khalid.

He was speaking at a press conference after opening the Selangor Government Department’s Monthly Assembly at the Silver Jubilee Hall, Bangunan Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah.

This new approach serves to prove Khalid Ibrahim administration’s commitment in producing professional work culture, and at the same time increasing public confidence in the State Government’s services.

According to Khalid Ibrahim, this unit will be fully functional come September or October.

“I have been informed that the MACC officers have agreed to be placed as members of the unit,” said Khalid.

He said the concept of integrity emulates the former Chief Minister of Kelantan, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, who strived to maintain clean administration in Kelantan for the past 23 years.
