KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 13, 2015:
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has denied a news report in an online portal that its officers were probing Chief Secretary to the Government and the Public Service Department (PSD) director-general.
Its Deputy Chief Commissioner (Prevention) Datuk Mustafar Ali said MACC was not investigating Tan Sri Ali Hamsa and Tan Sri Mohamad Zabidi Zainal under Section 48 of the MACC Act (2009).
“Besides being unfounded, the commission believes such statements were aimed at harming the good relations between public agencies and the leadership of the Malaysian civil service.
“While MACC appreciates the cooperation by the media, the commission also expects the media to be responsible by not quoting invalid sources (in their reports),” he said in a statement today.
Earlier today, news portal MalaysiaKini reported that several reports against the two have been filed with the commission by its own officers.
This was believed to have been linked to the outgoing transfers of two MACC directors on Aug 7 which was reversed earlier this week.
