KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today said that any member of his Cabinet found involved in corrupt practices must be dismissed from their positions to save the country from corruption.

Anwar said he has also directed the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to take action against ministers found involved in such practices.

“We have been in power for over a year…I have been asking in Parliament and outside Parliament for anyone with information about a corrupt minister of a prime minister to come forward with solid proof, if there’s any, we will investigate and prosecute according to the laws…but there was none and after one year and three months now, I salute all my friends (in Cabinet) for helping me to uphold the image of clean and corruption-free government.

“The message is also clear for the MACC to always monitor every tender and decision made and not to spare any minister from their investigations.

“If they (MACC) ask me, I would say go ahead and take the necessary action and that minister must be dropped (from the Cabinet). That’s the way to keep the country safe,” he said when opening the National Anti-Corruption Summit (NACS) 2024 here today. – BERNAMA
