USE POLYGRAPH TEST TO STEM GRAFT IN CIVIL SERVICE

Malaysiakini
17/1/2017

 
Transparency International Malaysia today suggested that polygraph test be introduced in the civil service to detect abuse among its employees.
Its president Akhbar Satar said such a test would not only help to identify corrupt employees, but also provide opportunities to those accused of doing so to clear their names.
He said with 98 percent effectiveness in detecting lies, the polygraph test could be conducted on high-ranking civil servants and those holding important posts.
"Department heads, enforcement officers and civil servants holding sensitive posts, like those handling funds and contracts, as well as those involve in protecting the country's security, should also be made to take the test," he told Bernama in Kuala Lumpur today.
Akhbar, who is also Malaysian Association of Certified Fraud Examiners chief, said the polygraph test had been used widely by various sectors in more than 80 countries, including Singapore and Thailand.
In Malaysia, he said, the test was only used by enforcement agencies for investigation purpose and by some private companies when conducting an internal inquiry or recruiting new staff.
He said although the public sector in the country involved a huge number of employees, the test could be conducted at random and as spot check on employees with integrity problems.
Caution needed
Meanwhile, Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) president Azih Muda said the congress would support any move that could enhance credibility and integrity of civil servants.
However, he said, if the polygraph test was to be carried out, it should take into account the society's perception so that it would not create prejudice against civil servants.
"We do not want a situation where the people have the perception that all civil servants are not honest and have to take the polygraph test," he added.
An English newspaper today reported that the Public Services Commission (PSC) agreed to reintroduce the polygraph test to address corruption among civil servants. The newspaper quoted PSC as saying that it was prepared to discuss with government agencies to decide on civil employees who should have the test and its frequency.
The polygraph test is carried out using a special detector which is placed, like on fingers, arm and chest, and connected to a computer.
The subject or person will be questioned by a specialist handling the device, which is capable of detecting any lie or changes in the body.

CIVIL SERVANTS ASKED TO DROP SILO MENTALITY

Malaymail
10/1/2017

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 10 — Government departments and civil servants have been urged drop their culture of working in silos in order to make 2017 the year of delivery for the benefit of the people.Head of the National Council of Professors’ Governance, Law and Public Management Cluster, Prof Dr Nik Ahmad Kamal Nik Mahmod said the Public Service Department (PSD) and the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (Mampu) must take drastic action to find the best way of tackling this culture.
“Similarly, there must be more firm action in the delivery system, if a project is not completed, those who contributed to it must be punished.

Speaking to Bernama when contacted today, Nik Ahmad Kamal said members of the public should be more proactive and daring to lodge complaints with the Public Complaints Bureau if they find that the quality of service was not at the highest level.In his speech at the Monthly Gathering of the Prime Minister’s Department yesterday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak instructed civil servants to make 2017 the year of delivery, with emphasis on implementing projects, programmes, services and measures that had been planned for the prosperity of the people.

On the issue of leakages in the civil service, Nik Ahmad Kamal said it was a question of integrity and weak religious beliefs which led to the failure of the disease being curtailed. He said this matter had not only been voiced by the Prime Minister but also by leaders such as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the Sultans.“The civil service already has an internal mechanism such as internal audit and the integrity unit, and is constantly being monitored by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

“However, all these have failed to curb corruption because there are still those who are willing to give and accept bribes,” he said. Meanwhile, Cuepacs president Datuk Azih Muda said civil servants irrespective of rank must deliver the goods.“The call by the Prime Minister must be taken seriously because each allocation made must reach the target groups and not be spent midway,” he said. — Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR, 5 Jan (Bernama) -- Kongres Kesatuan Pekerja-pekerja Di Dalam Perkhidmatan Awam (Cuepacs) menyambut baik keputusan kerajaan yang mensyaratkan majikan membayar levi pekerja asing berkuat kuasa 1 Jan lepas, kerana majikan wajar bertanggungjawab terhadap kebajikan pekerja mereka.

Presidennya Datuk Azih Muda berpendapat levi yang perlu dibayar oleh majikan adalah bertujuan untuk merekod setiap transaksi kemasukan pekerja asing ke negara ini dan bukan untuk membebankan majikan.

"Kita tidak mahu kerajaan menanggung beban tambahan di mana sakit demam pekerja asing ini dibayar oleh kerajaan, malah ada rekod rawatan di hospital kerajaan yang tidak dibayar oleh mereka (pekerja)," kata Azih kepada Bernama.....

FULL SUPPORT FOR MACC's NEW GRAF WAR

The Star
4/1/2017

PETALING JAYA: The business community, industry players, civil servants and Bukit Aman will give their full cooperation to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in the war on graft focusing on the civil service.
“I have made it clear that corrupt or crooked police personnel will not be tolerated and firm action must be taken.
“The battle against corruption must be fought on all fronts and the police force is doing its part,” said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.
Internally, Bukit Aman was always proactive in weeding out crooked personnel and officers, through the Integrity and Standard Compliance Department, he added.
Khalid was commenting on MACC deputy chief commissioner Datuk Azam Baki’s declaration that the commission’s war on graft would focus on the civil service, especially the procurement and enforcement sides.
Congress of Unions of Employees in Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) lauded MACC’s war on graft involving civil servants, saying that it could boost the integrity of the service.
Its president Datuk Azih Muda said the move could also boost the country’s ratings at the international stage.
Azih hoped that MACC would also focus on preventive measures.
Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia secretary-general Datuk Low Kian Chuan said it was a timely move as there had been many reports of leakages, as noted in the Auditor-General’s report every year.
“We hope the MACC will take it seriously. The business community will cooperate and give their full support,” he said.
Malay Merchants and Entrepreneurs Association vice-president Datuk Naim Mohamad lauded the move, saying that MACC should also consider reviewing the procedures and processes of awarding big government projects.
“We should reduce human intervention and set specifications in order for it to be fully mechanised. Those who want to apply for tender should input their information on prepared templates,” said Naim.
He said a cashless system should be introduced to eradicate any form of abuse or leakages, especially in government projects.
“Authorities should have a better system to identify those involved in graft by monitoring any irregularities in officers’ financial status. This way, any discrepancies or abnormalities in income, spending or lifestyle, will be notified to the relevant authorities immediately,” he said.
Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce vice-president Kerk Loong Sing said stern action must be taken against those involved in mismanagement or had broken the law.
“Sometimes, action is not seen and as a result the problem will occur each year,” he said.
