Transparency International Malaysia (TI-M) has voiced concern over the systemic corruption among civil servants following the crippling of an immigration syndicate which involved Immigration Department officers.
In a statement, the anti-graft watchdog’s president, Muhammad Mohan, said the systemic corruption does not augur well for Malaysia in the Corruption Perception Index score.
“It appears the rot is deep within the Immigration Department, with regular arrests taking place as the nation struggles with porous borders and being earmarked as a migrant smuggling destination,” he said.
Yesterday, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission crippled an immigration syndicate with the arrest of 46 people, including 27 immigration officers.
