IPOH (Oct 29, 2011): Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah today warned of stern action against the officials and government employees found to have abused or neglected allocation procedure expenses.

"To examine the extraordinary expenses, the government has set up a system where action will be taken against those involved in irregularities.

"This is necessary so that the guilty shall not escape punishment and abuse is not repeated," he told reporters after opening the 1Malaysia Computer Centre, here.

Ahmad Husni said the government continued to pursue accountability, which can be seen from the audit report by the Auditor General recently.

"The message to the public is clear, stern action will be taken to improve the quality, integrity and credibility of the public service," he said.

Therefore, he said, the government has directed all the officers to list the issues raised in the report for further action.

Ahmad Husni said all ministries and agencies must prepare a report on the issues raised by the public and government audit will review and evaluate the report and respond to abuses.

He also said that in order to streamline the system of work, the government will introduce a new system in January in which the performance of civil servants will be evaluated for promotion.

"The system also provides for civil servants who do not perform well subject to disciplinary action or fired," he said.

At the ceremony, Ahmad Husni has delivered 40 computers to 16 libraries in the Tambun Parliament, which was donated by the SME Bank. SME Bank managing director, Datuk Mohd Radzif Mohd Yunus and Manjoi State Assemblyman, Datuk Nadzri Ismail were also present. - Bernama
