PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is committed to fully implementing the decree of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Ibrahim and will fulfill this responsibility with utmost integrity.

In a statement on Tuesday (March 2), MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki said the agency respects the King’s decree that combating corruption, the nation’s number one enemy, is a top priority in His Majesty’s rule.

“His Majesty’s order reflects his firmness in combating corruption and should be upheld by every layer of society because a corruption-free populace is crucial for the integrity and stability of the nation.
