‘Leave it to my investigating officers’: MACC chief

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki will leave it to his officers to further investigate allegations of corruption linked to Yayasan Akalbudi (YAB) funds.

(NST) – “I will leave it to my investigating officers to investigate this.”

He said this after launching the National Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption Research Conference here, today.

The High Court had, on Monday, granted Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi a discharge not amounting to acquittal (DNAA) of 12 criminal breach of trust charges, eight counts of bribery and 27 for money laundering, involving scores of millions of ringgit belonging to YAB.

He was accused of committing the offences between March 28, 2016 and April 11, 2018.
