KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 7, 2015:
Two Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) directors have been transferred to the Prime Minister’s Department.
A source told The Rakyat Post that the transfers were made with immediate effect from today.
The duo are Special Operations Division director Datuk Bahri Mohamad Zin and Strategic Communications director Datuk Rohaizad Yaakob.
The source said the transfers were believed to have been related to media statements that were made yesterday and on Wednesday.
Bahri was previously reported to have said his office did not perpetrate the leak of documents in relation to the investigation on 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB)-owned SRC International Sdn Bhd.
The MACC has in recent weeks been under the scrutiny of the Royal Malaysian Police, with several arrests made towards its officers and former officials on purported leaks of the probe to whistle-blower website Sarawak Report and other news portals.
Bahri was also reported to have pledged to seek and expose those who ordered the arrests.
“I swear by Allah I will find the mastermind who ordered these arrests.
“We worked day and night during the fasting month and this continued throughout Hari Raya.
“We have no time for politics, but we are doing our jobs as mandated and expected by the people,” he said.
