Section 17A, a new section in the MACC act will be effective with effect from 1/6/2020 after its moratorium period. This new section extended the scope of the MACC Act to cover Commercial Organizations.


Under this section, “A commercial organization commits an offence if a person associated with the commercial organization corruptly gives, agrees to give, promise of offer to any person any gratification for the benefit of that person with intent to obtain or retain business or advantage in the conduct of the business for the organization” Upon conviction the fine can be not less than 10 times of the value of the gratification or RM1.0m whichever is greater or subject up to years in prison or both.


Who then is deemed to have committed the offence when the commercial organization committed the offence??? Persons such as Directors, Controllers, Officer, Partners or any other person who is concerned in the management of the organizations affairs is deemed to have committed the offence UNLESS he can prove that such offence is committed without his consent and that he has exercised all due diligence to prevent such commission of the offence.


However, under S17A(4), it allows a DEFENCE for the organization if they can prove that they have in place adequate policies and procedures to prevent any person associated with the organization from committing such offence.
