Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu is ready to heed Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad's call on politicians to declare their assets to the MACC.
The Amanah president said he had previously also declared his assets to Invoke Malaysia, founded by former Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli.
"There is no problem, I can declare my assets anytime," he told reporters when met at the Aidilfitri celebration at the Defence Ministry today.
Meanwhile, on the formation of a special cabinet committee to tackle corruption, Mohamad said there were many do's and don'ts explained at a special briefing held on the matter today.
He said all government leaders including the prime minister and deputy prime minister had to declare any form of 'gift' received which was worth more than RM500 to the MACC.
The prime minister in a press conference after attending a special briefing by the National Centre for Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption today said the government was still considering how much information on the assets of MPs and their families would be disclosed to the public in order to protect their privacy.
He said no one had declared their assets to date, and no timeframe had been given to do so.
Unrestrained power in your hands
For almost 20 years, Malaysiakini has stayed true to the cause of providing the Malaysian public with the truth. We believe that with unadulterated information, the people will obtain power to make informed decisions.
Decisions which lead to a healthy, robust nation - ours!
Keep the truth alive. Support your robust, independent media. You have the unrestrained power to do so.
Who says it's not our fault?
We aren’t trained to take responsibility.
Everytime we observe an injustice - and choose to keep mum - the prevalence of injustice becomes our fault.
Astute journalism paves the way for the public to be continuously furnished with the fastidious truth. You are continuously empowered to act and to uphold the integrity of the nation.
The Rakyat owns Malaysiakini
We choose to take a risk on independent media because we believe that only through independent reporting can one be NOT beholden to the interest of businesses or organisations. This allows us to really pursue the truth - aggressively.
Independent for 20 years.
The victorious people
In the light of holding the truth to power, Malaysiakini will continue to uphold its mission of providing credible news to its discerning public. Your support for Malaysiakini is always treasured as a testament of innate nationalism. Your victory is our history.
Quietly. Effectively. Says it all. Malaysiakini.
Speaking truth to power
When we embarked on this journey 20 years ago, we knew we would face intimidation, harassment, raids, arrests and perhaps even jail terms. We got into this venture with our eyes wide open.
The main reason we have survived this long - when many others have folded - is partly because we are prudent in our finances. But while we may be tightfisted in our budgeting, we do not hold back when it comes to speaking truth to power and holding power to account. And certainly, this new administration will not stop us from continuing to do so.
