GOMBAK, 16 April 2018 – Students will have a chance to express their voice and concerns on the issues of corruption at one prestigious event called “KOMAWAR” this Wednesday (18 April).
Organised by the university’s “Sekretariat Pencegahan Rasuah“ (SPR), the event will be held at the Main Auditorium in campus here.
The organiser believed that youth should be nurtured to fight this common issue from an early stage which should begin at the university level, one of the reasons why students are encouraged to attend the convention.
There will be several highlights during the event such as the birth and launch of GEMA, an acronym for Gerakan Mahasiswa Anti Rasuah or Students Anti Corruption Movement, an initiative proposed by SPR of IIUM as one of the means to shield the youth and their peers from the practice of corruption.
Attendees will also be able to participate in the first ever anti-corruption pledge that will be upheld by the students. This pledge is an initiative brought forth by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC)
Present as witness during the pledge would be the Rector of IIUM, Prof. Dato’ Sri Dr. Zaleha Kamarudin accompanied by the Chief Commissioner of Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission, Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad.
Prize-giving for video competition organised by SPRIIUM will also take place during the convention.
Doors will be open from 8 a.m until 10.30 pm. Attendees are advised to wear formal attires. Registration can be done by following this link : https://goo.gl/forms/SnHQmvwqaYO3p6m02
