MoCS receives public feedback on corrupt practices

KUCHING – Since forming its Anti-Corruption Committee on Feb 13, the Movement for Change, Sarawak (MoCS) has received numerous complaints from the public on corrupt practices, particularly in the civil service.

Committee chairman Baharuddin Mokhsen told a press conference today that MoCS has opened a few files based on information received for further investigation.

“We will do our utmost to get to the bottom of the complaints although they came mainly from whistleblowers,” he said.

Baharuddin stressed that it was now clear that the people of Sarawak need an avenue to turn to in reporting corruption.

“There are many citizens who are concerned with the rampant corruption around us. MoCS will provide that platform for the public who may feel more comfortable in reporting to an independent organization.

“The movement is action-oriented and we will act. Whether it is ‘big fish or small fish’ we will try to catch them all,” he added.

Baharuddin said MoCS leaders will meet with the Sarawak MACC Commissioner on March 9 to clear a few outstanding issues with the anti-graft agency.

On the RM63 million allegation of dubious dealing against Baram MP Dato Jacob Sagan, Baharuddin said it was vital for the deputy minister to come out and publicly make a stand on the matter.

“The same goes for others who have been accused of involvement in corrupt practices. If they keep quiet, it is natural for the public to assume that there are some truths to the allegations,” he said.

Also present at this morning’s press conference were MoCS leader Francis Paul Siah, its Bengoh coordinator Buln Patrick Rigos and committee member Lau Kieng Chai.
