BANGI, April 13 (Bernama) -- Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) has taken a proactive measure by offering an Integrity and Corruption Course in a bid to enhance awareness about corruption offences among its students.

Course coordinator, Associate Prof Dr Fazilah Idris said the elective course was being offered from this year by the UKM Citra Centre with full cooperation from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

"So far, we are the only university that offers such a course to our undergraduates as we realise that it is important to develop early awareness among the students.

"The MACC officers are also involved as educators," she told Bernama after an Interactive Talk programme with former magistrate Mohd Firdaus Ramlan at the university here today.

During the talk, Mohd Firdaus shared his experience in prison after being convicted of a corruption offences, with the hope that it would act as a warning and deterrent to others.

Mohd Firdaus was sent to jail in 2012 and released in 2014, and is now active in anti-corruption activities and talks especially to students and staff at various institutions and government agencies nationwide.

"I have to do this because I don't want my children and the next generation to commit the same offence, he said.
