TEMERLOH: A total of 418,200 or 41% of the 1.2 million civil servants in the country were suspected to be involved in corruption last year, said Cuepacs president Omar Osman.
He said this was worrying and needed to be tackled urgently.
“To combat the scourge, Cuepacs will work closely with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission so that civil servants involved in corrupt activities can be brought to book,” he told reporters after opening the triennial general meeting of one of the affiliates of the umbrella union, here Wednesday.
Omar said besides corruption, Cuepacs would also not protect civil servants who had discipline problems like playing truant or forging medical certificates.
“There have been cases where a one day medical leave prescribed by the doctor have been amended to read 11 days,” said Omar. – Bernama
