Introduction to SATRA
The Code of Conduct and Corruption Complaint System (SATRA) is an internal complaint channel that enables PLANMalaysia’s employees to lodge complaints about misconduct, code of conduct, corruption activities or related matters that occur in PLANMalaysia.
A code of conduct complaint refers to a complaint against an act, behavior or any act of non-integrity, disobeying or violation of laws, regulations, circulars, procedures, administrative instructions or any existing government procedures performed by PLANMalaysia employees that are detected visually or verbally supported by physical evidence or other evidences supporting the complaint.
Corruption complaint refers to a complaint against an act, behavior or any act involving soliciting/accepting bribes or giving bribes or abuse of power or submitting false claims that are detected visually or verbally supported by physical evidence or other evidences supporting the complaint.
This complaint system is a channel for internal use of PLANMalaysia Headquarters only. Complaints of misconduct and corruption against officers on duty at PLANMalaysia@Negeri/Local Authorities/other Government Agencies should be submitted directly to the agency regulating the officer.
