ANTI-BRIBERY AND ANTI CORRUPTION POLICY
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission in its official portal describes “corruption” as an act of giving or receiving any gratification or reward in the form of cash or in-kind of high value for performing a task in relation to his/her job function or activity.
The MACC Act stipulates four main offences:
- Soliciting/Receiving Gratification (Bribe)
- Offering/Giving Gratification (Bribe)
- Intending to Deceive (False Claim)
- Using Office or Position for Gratification (Bribe) (Abuse of Power/Position)
The MACC (Amendment) Act 2018, which will be in force on 1 June 2020, introduces two more offences:
- Offering/Giving Gratification by commercial organization (Corporate Liability)
- Deemed Parallel Personal Liability for Senior Personnel (Personal Liability)
Bribery and corruption in all its forms as it relates to IDEALUBIB’s activities are prohibited. Bribery and corruption may take the form of anything of value, such as money, goods, services, property, privilege, employment position or preferential treatment.
IDEALUBIB’s personnel and its business associates shall not, whether directly or indirectly, offer, give, receive or solicit any item of value, in the attempt to illicitly influence the decisions or actions of a person in a position of trust within an organization, either for the intended benefit of the Company or the persons involved in the transaction.
The anti-bribery and anti-corruption policies apply equally to its business dealings with both private and public sector entities, and include their directors, personnel, agents and other appointed representatives.
No employees or external parties will suffer demotion, penalty or other adverse consequences in retaliation for refusing to pay or receive bribes or participate in any illicit behaviour.
GIFTS, ENTERTAINMENT, DONATION AND HOSPITALITY
IDEALUBIB’s personnel are strictly prohibited from directly or indirectly receiving or soliciting for gifts from any party for themselves or for or on behalf of IDEALUBIB. IDEALUBIB’s personnel shall not accept any gift or hospitality whether it’s in cash or in kind, and/or when there is any suggestion that a return favour will be expected or implied.
Our personnel must not directly or indirectly provide or offer to provide entertainment with a view to cause undue influence or in exchange for favours. Any form of entertainment must not be accepted in exchange for an exercise or non-exercise of their job function or activity. Such acts are considered corruption.
Similarly, IDEALUBIB prohibits the giving and receiving of donations to influence business decisions.
IDEALUBIB’s personnel must not directly or indirectly solicit or accept corporate hospitality of any form that is excessive, inappropriate, illegal or given in response to, in anticipation of, or to influence a favourable business decision.
