Corruption can occur in all aspects of society, including in universities. To eradicate corruption, it is essential that witnesses to corrupt acts stand up and speak against these practices.
However, the risk involved in whistleblowing can discourage potential whistleblowers, especially from the youth community.
As students, is it too dangerous to be an informant?
How do you make a complaint to the authorities if you witness corruption or abuse of power within your circles?
How are you protected?
This community engagement training on the Whistleblower Protection Act 2010 was organised by C4 Center in collaboration with Undi18 (Malaysian youth movement advocating for the reduction of the minimum voting age from 21 to 18-years-old) to raise awareness on whistleblowing among the student community, and to encourage discussion on this important legislation.
Featured speakers included:
- Cynthia Gabriel, founder and executive director, C4 Center
- Tharma Pillai, co-founder and advocacy director, Undi18
- PKPj Mohd Nur Lokman Samingan, head of Private Sector Branch, Community Education Division, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC)
- Sudhagaran Stanley, programme manager, C4 Center
