Probe Papers On 18 Audit Cases Sent To Attorney-General's Chambers - Ali Hamsa
He said in a statement the papers were submitted by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
The papers included the case of alleged false claims involving a Works Ministry director verifying a certificate of completion of work on the Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK) hostel in Jeli costing RM23.6 million as well as the construction of the UMK campus in Bachok costing RM100.4 million when the work by the contractor allegedly did not meet the specifications and had not been fully completed, he said.
Another was the case of alleged false claims submitted by Telekom Malaysia (TM) to the then Information, Communication and Culture Ministry pertaining to the Malaysian Emergency Response Services (MERS) 999 project valued at RM4.37 million over the period 2007 to 2012, he said.
Ali said that for the period 2007 to 2010, TM had also allegedly claimed payment of RM3.19 million for promotion and publicity services when the project had actually been cancelled.
"The MACC has proposed that several cases be taken to court and several others be limited to disciplinary action," Ali said, adding that this was the status as of Feb 21.
He said that as of that date, in the matter of other cases of misconduct and negligence, 24 cases involving 140 officers had been identified and they had been subjected to disciplinary and surcharge proceedings.
"Of the total, disciplinary action had been initiated against 99 officers, disciplinary and surcharge proceedings against 12 and surcharge proceedings against 29," he said.
The cases subjected to disciplinary and surcharge proceedings included cases on the loss of assets involving 67 police officers and cases on aid programmes involving two officers of the Youth and Sports Ministry, he said.
Ali said that as of Feb 21, the cases involving 20 officers had been decided by the disciplinary board, with 18 found guilty and two others freed.
Sixteen of the 18 found guilty were issued a warning which would have a bearing on their promotion for a period of one year, he said.
