KUCHING: The state government will support and cooperate with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in any corruption cases that involve government officers or ministers.

Minister in the Chief Minister’s Office (Integrity and Ombudsman) Datuk Talib Zulpilip said “politics should not be mixed up with integrity”.

“Yes, the government will support and cooperate with MACC that involve corruptions among government officers, and even ministers.

“I believe MACC is doing their job, and we will support them. We do not take sides. Integrity should not be mixed up with politics, and anyone who commits wrongdoings, we will investigate and we will continue to cooperate with MACC,” says Talib.

Earlier, he was asked by reporters to comment on the recent case involving an Assistant Minister of the State Cabinet who has vested interests in some land issues in Simunjan, to which he said that he has not seen the details of the case yet.

“For now, I can’t comment in detail yet as I have not seen the report officially, so no comment for now,” he said.

Talib also launched a Plogging Programme organised by the Chief Minister’s Office (Integrity and Ombudsman), MAKSAK Sarawak and Kuching North City Council (DBKU), in conjunction with the Prime Integrity 2019 Commendation Ceremony at the Old State Legislative Assembly Building here, this morning.
