Perhalusi nilai integriti negara jayakan TN50

HAMPIR setiap minggu kita disajikan dengan laporan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) bertindak tegas menangani rasuah.Persoalannya, adakah isu rasuah dilihat semakin serius atau adakah ini perkara biasa yang sudah lama wujud? Apa pun isunya, kita perlu diingatkan rasuah harus dilihat secara lebih menyeluruh, bukan hanya berkaitan sogokan duit.
Masalah kurang integriti lain, sama ada salah guna kuasa, penyelewengan serta pecah amanah perlu juga difahami sebagai perkara berkaitan hal yang dianggap dapat merosakkan sistem governans dan integriti organisasi atau masyarakat. Semua perkara ini perlu diberi perhatian dan dibendung daripada awal.

Terap budaya integriti di rumah

MASALAH integriti khususnya gejala rasuah membabitkan orang biasa dan individu berkepentingan sering dilaporkan media massa sejak akhir-akhir ini. Dengan begitu banyak penangkapan secara berterusan oleh Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM), isu rasuah di negara ini dilihat serius serta agak membimbangkan.
