Rela personnel asked to be ‘eyes and ears’ of MACC

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC)¬† has called for People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela) personnel to be their¬† “eyes and ears”.

MACC chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad (pic) said this during the Rela Corruption-Free Pledge signing ceremony on Tuesday.

“The commitment of Rela to sign the pledge serves as a motivation to the MACC workforce to continue carrying out their responsibilities in fighting corruption and gross abuses of power,” he said.

Dzulkifli added that the Rela initiative shows its effort to ensure that its administration is free of misappropriation of power or corruption, and said that the pledge would strengthen Rela’s management as a graft-free government agency.

A total of 581 Rela officers and volunteers signed the pledge and the ceremony was witnessed by Home Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Alwi Ibrahim and Rela director general Zulkifli Abidin

So far several organisations, including the Petaling Jaya Land and District Office as well as over 40 non-governmental organisations have taken this oath.
