In light of the new Section 17A in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009, it is even more important for businesses today to review and look into its policies and procedures. Businesses need to put in place proper controls to demonstrate that adequate procedures have been implemented to mitigate and curb corrupted practices.
Failure to do so may lead to the businesses being liable to prosecution and penalties for an unauthorised or unsanctioned act that was done by someone associated with the business.
