MACC jingle in three languages highlights the evils of bribery

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission has launched the MACC Jingle aimed at creating awareness on the evils of corruption.The MACC Jingle “Let’s make a difference” is sung in English, Malay and Chinese by local artistes Jaclyn Victor, Aizat and Choo Hua Ren.More than 200 guests including editors and journalists from 22 electronic and print media were present during the ceremony at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur last week.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said the media had an important role in showcasing the commission’s efforts and the evils of corruption in society.He said in recent times, the vernacular media had often potrayed MACC as the enemy and blew up a few cases to the point it made the commission’s actions questionable.

“MACC takes care of its witnesses and there is no reason for MACC to harm or jeopardise them in any way,” he said.Earlier, MACC chief commissioner Datuk Abu Kassim Mohamed lamented when MACC lost a case in court, it saw a lot of press coverage.“However, when we win a case, it sees little publicity.”
Abu Kassim said the publicity was not to glorify the commission but to warn people that corruption was wrong and they would be punished for it.
