Published on: Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Labuan: The Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) here, in collaboration with Labuan Corporation (LC), has launched the island's first Women's Anti-Corruption Movement (G-War).

Launched in conjunction with the International Women's Day last Thursday, it is aimed at bringing women across Malaysia to rise with the MACC in their efforts to curb and combat corruption through their roles in family institutions, organisations and communities.

Some 60 women from the island gathered at the Labuan Corporation Tower to participate in the launching ceremony. Several departments under LC attended the ceremony as well to show their support.

A talk on the "Role of Women in Combating Corruption" by Labuan MACC Assistant Director Geoffrey Tawayan was among the highlights at the event.

Also present was Labuan MACC Director Abdulamin Abdillah.

Meanwhile, Labuan's Matriculation College became another agency to pledge to be graft-free by joining the MACC's IBR initiative in combating corruption, malpractice and abuse.

Some 210 lecturers and staff took the pledge led by their director Yusof Samad and witnessed by Geoffrey, last Friday. - Iffah Dilaney
