MACC seeks law to make asset declaration compulsory for MPs

August 06, 2020 (PN)

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is seeking a law to make it compulsory for Members of Parliament to declare their assets, said MACC deputy chief commissioner (prevention), Datuk Shamshun Baharin Mohd Jamil.

He said the law could be enforced next year if the relevant parties worked towards making it a reality. 

“The bill could be tabled in Parliament as early as at the end of this year if everything goes smoothly,” he said in the interview on (My Anti-Corruption Channel), today.

Shamshun Baharin explained that without the compulsory asset-declaration law, the MACC only played a “custodian” role in the case of asset-declaration forms handed to it.
