PETALING JAYA: The chief secretary to the government today urged civil servants to report any acts of sabotage to their respective heads of department and warned that strict action would be taken against perpetrators.
“I will personally address the matter,” Ali Hamsa said in a statement.
He was responding to a news report that several civil servants appointed by the Pakatan Harapan government to various positions in the ministries had fallen victim to saboteurs.
According to theSundaily, such incidents had occurred in three ministries and had resulted in the removal of a senior civil servant, who allegedly masterminded the sabotage at one ministry.
The daily quoted sources who revealed that a number of senior civil servants – mainly those who had strong links with the previous administration – were involved in the plot.
Ali also said he had instructed all secretaries-general and heads of department to be alert to any possibility of “derailing the administration and the government of the day”.
“Any deliberate attempt to sabotage and undermine the present government or its administration will not be tolerated.
“Strict action will be taken against the perpetrators without fear or favour.”
