Be it PM or a minister, action will be taken.

Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim has expressed his appreciation to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and the police for their firmness and courage in taking action regardless of the rank and status of the individuals implicated.

He said this indirectly shows the country’s commitment to good governance and efforts to combat corruption and the drug issue by ensuring that no dignitaries, ‘sharks’ or small fish involved in drugs would escape investigation and action by the authorities.

“We have shown the kind of determination seldom seen in other countries, what more developing nations. The authorities have acted against personalities considered immune from any form of investigation and action.


“You steal national funds, rob the country of its wealth, whether you are the prime minister, finance minister, ministers, remember, we have to act firmly to save the country,” he said.

He expressed these views during the launch of the Central Database Hub (Padu) system in Putrajaya.

Anwar also praised the police for their measures against drug trafficking, emphasizing a shift towards targeting the leaders of drug rings. He noted that such actions serve as a deterrent and a reminder for those involved in illicit activities.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay previously stated that the police were intensifying efforts to combat drug trafficking and apprehend the leaders of drug rings apart from drug dealing.
