THERE is no political motive in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission’s (MACC) probe into illegal sand-mining activities in Selangor, reports The Star.
MACC chief commissioner Dzulkifli Ahmad says his people have performed their duties professionally after they arrested four people including Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali’s nephew.
This comes after the Selangor administration said the MACC arrest was part of a conspiracy to tarnish Azmin and the state government.
“The information received had basis, as such, we started our investigations. So we are free from any form of influence or even sabotage as mentioned,” he told the newspaper.
All four suspects are said to have raked in huge profits from sand-mining activities in the state since 2014.
They have been remanded until Wednesday.
