C4: We’ll ensure only credible posts on Kleptocrazy Malaysia


PETALING JAYA: The reports and photos submitted to the new Kleptocrazy Malaysia website will not be automatically posted online, says Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) executive director Cynthia Gabriel.
The website, which was launched by the anti-graft NGO on Saturday, is to serve as a whistleblower site to highlight cases of public officials and politicians said to have “unusual wealth”.

Cynthia said certain procedures will be followed strictly and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will be the one to decide whether any case needs further investigation. “There are procedures in place and the public will only play its part in the initial stage, which is reporting.

“MACC will be the gatekeeper and determine if the case is valid or not,” Cynthia said. She was responding to claims by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Paul Low that the public should not be involved in judging individuals deemed to be corrupt. The issue of authenticity and credibility of the information is questionable, Low had said when commenting on the launching of the website.
