A launch of an Anti -Corruption Awareness Campaign on Public Transport was conducted at the Muzium Negara MRT Station on 22 November 2021 by the Malaysian Anti -Corruption Commission (MACC) and Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp) Sdn Bhd.
The campaign was a collaborating between the two organisations, in line with the Government’s strong stance against corruption. It was jointly launched by MACC Chief Commissioner Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Haji Azam Baki and MRT Corp Chief Executive Officer Datuk Mohd Zarif Hashim
The collaboration involves print and digital campaign posters with anti-corruption messages being displayed at 48 top panels and 48 wall panels inside the train as well as 81 digital panels at underground stations of the MRT Kajang Line for the next four months, followed by an outer wrap of the train body expected to be carried out next year in 2022.
During the ceremony, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Haji Azam Baki and Datuk Mohd Zarif Hashim unveiled the campaign poster, and subsequently signed the poster to mark the collaboration between the two organisations.
Present at the ceremony were MACC Strategic Communications Department Director Tuan Kamarudin M Ripin and SIRIM QAS International Sdn Bhd Senior General Manager Tuan Haji Mohd Hamim Imam Mustain.
At the same ceremony, MRT Corp received the ISO 37001:2016 (Anti-Corruption Management System) certificate for its successful recertification audit. Mohd Hamim presented the certificate on behalf of SIRIM QAS International, as the auditor, to MRT Corp Chief Integrity and Governance Officer Dato’ Zainal Adam. MRT Corp has been certified with the ISO 37001:2016 (Anti-Corruption Management System) since 2018.
The campaign also paved the way for MRT Corp to extend the certification coverage and continuity by including the public, in addition to MRT Corp Board of Directors, Leadership Team, employees, contractors, vendors and others.
The certification is proof that an organisation has established a process to avoid any form of cost, risks and defects which may occurred due to corruption, which indirectly provide trust and assurance to stakeholders and business partners that the organisation is free from elements of corruption.
Shortly after, the guests toured around the station concourse and platform to view the campaign posters displayed on the digital panels around Muzium Negara MRT Station. Later, they were brought on a train ride on the designated MRT Train that displays print campaign posters in the interior to Stadium Merdeka MRT Station, with the visit ending shorty after.
