IIUM signs corruption-free pledge with MACC

By Azreen Azirinee Azizi

GOMBAK, 23 August 2017: IIUM has become the latest university to take the initiative to sign the  Corruption-Free Pledge (CFP) with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) recently.

IIUM Rector, Prof. Dato’ Sri Dr. Zaleha Kamarudin, accompanied by the President of IIUM, Tan Sri Dr. Rais Yatim, signed the Corruption-Free Pledge (CFP) on 17 August witnessed by MACC’s Chief Commissioner, Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad.

A total of 200 IIUM staff including those from the top management and the vendors who were present on that day also took an oath to avoid corrupt practice and abuse of power.

IIUM was recorded as the tenth university which had participated in the pledge and the fourth university in the state of Selangor to do so.

Speaking to the audience present, Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad said that corruption has caused the obstructing of development and retarded the growth of the nation, thus reducing revenue, increasing expenditure and creating inequalities in wealth and opportunity.

“Corruption is one of the greatest factors that has hindered the development and growth of the nation. It also reduces income, increases expenditure, and create inequalities not only in wealth but opportunity,” he said.

He also stated that institutions of higher learning are not immune from corruption, thus signing the pledge is a first step in combating corruption as “it is not the responsibility of MACC alone, but a collective duty of all members of society”.

Tan Sri Dr. Rais said IIUM will always cooperate with MACC in dealing with corruption within IIUM as a way to seek justice.

“We, as a university will always be cohesive with MACC towards the final end in seeking justice for our nation,” he said, urging the IIUM community to unite in dealing with corruption.

The President also said that the university will be determined to create an anti-corruption programme that will be accepted and practised by students and staff.

“We, the university must be resolved as well, that is, to create a necessary programme of anti corruption that could be accepted and practised by students and staff of IIUM,” the President added.

CFP is an initiative introduced by MACC where its emphasis is on voluntary pledge and oath taking by an organisation’s leadership and members in their individual capacity to hold each of them accountable and responsible for carrying out their duties and to hinder them from engaging in any form of corruption and misconduct throughout their service.***

  2. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  4. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  6. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  7. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  9. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
