KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 11, 2015:
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) investigations division director Datuk Azam Baki says Malaysian police should be given room to investigate Swiss national Xavier Andre Justo.
In a statement today, Azam said this was in view of the fact that the police had already opened their investigation papers on Justo who was arrested in mid-June in Thailand.
The former PetroSaudi International’s head of IT unit had confessed to stealing and trying to blackmail his former employer with stolen confidential data, and was sentenced to three years’ jail after he pleaded guilty to the charge.
“If police come across elements of corruption, they can also proceed as they have the authority to investigate corruption-related crimes.
“But if they feel that MACC should investigate, it is ready to co-operate including helping to gain access to Justo so that his statements can be taken.”
