The Malaysian Bar, in collaboration with the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (“IDEAS”), the Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (“C4”), Citizens’ Network for a Better Malaysia (“CNBM”), and Transparency International Malaysia (“TI-M”), submitted a joint memorandum to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (“MACC”) on 28 July 2015 setting out our proposals to reform the MACC, for it to comprehensively address and deal with corruption.
The reform proposals are:
to create an Independent Anti-Corruption Commission (“IACC”), a constitutionally mandated commission, beyond the scope, control and influence of the Executive;
to ensure the independence of Commissioners serving the commission; and
to ensure security of tenure for the Chairman and Commissioners.
