ALL EXCEPT FOR NAJIB! ‘THEY WILL FACE MACC SOON’ – GRAFT BUSTER CLOSES IN ON ‘4 PEOPLE’ INCLUDING A ‘DATUK’

PUTRAJAYA – The anti-graft agency is close to taking action against four people over claims that they abused their positions at a cooperative that was in their charge.

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Dzulkifli Ahmad said it was just “a matter of time” before the persons, three of them having the title Datuk, would have to face his men.

“There will be new developments in this case very soon, in a short period of time,” he told the media, adding that he did not want to say more than that.

Dzulkifli was at an event to distribute bu­bur lambuk at the Putrajaya Ramadan bazaar.

According to a media report yesterday, the four allegedly abused their positions in the cooperative of a government-linked company by introducing a multi-level marketing scheme and “forcing” the members to sign up.

On another matter, Dzulkifli said the death of a 29-year-old police inspector, believed to have shot himself, has no connection with any MACC investigation.

The officer was found dead by his colleague at the Pasir Puteh district police station.

Dzulkifli and his deputy Datuk Azam Baki also handed out Gerakan Revolusi Anti-Rasuah (Gerah) stickers to the crowd at the event.

Through the Gerah campaign, the MACC aims to enlist the support of the people in its war against graft by shaping society to hate, reject and fight corruption.

Some 2,000 officers from all over the country are meeting with people to foster closer rapport and cooperation.

The campaign is in its second month.
