MACC offers to station senior officer in Sabah Chief Minister's office

KOTA KINABALU, Sept 11 -- The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has offered to station a senior officer at the Sabah Chief Minister's office as part of its efforts to curb corrupt practices. 

MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya said the offer to place senior officers at Chief Ministers’ and Menteris Besar offices was a routine move taken to prevent opportunities for corruption. 

“Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal has welcomed this proposal (to place MACC senior officer)… and this will be done very soon,” she told reporters after paying Mohd Shafie a courtesy call at the State Administrative Centre here today. 

Also present was Sabah MACC director Datuk Sazali Salbi.

Latheefa said her meeting with Mohd Shafie was to discuss several state-level anti-corruption matters. 

Meanwhile, asked whether the MACC was still probing Sabah government leaders who were being investigated before this, Latheefa said investigations files will not be closed just these leaders were now in power. 

“However, MACC will have to evaluate these cases because during Barisan Nasional's rule, the MACC was constantly used as a political tool by certain quarters in which many of complaints were lodged merely to slander political enemies. 

“But we have not stopped investigations on these cases just because they are now in power, we will only close the files if we find the cases were nothing but mere baseless complaints with ulterior political motives. For a long time, the MACC was used as a political tool, and reports were lodged to attack others. We are working hard to execute our jobs professionally and we will not be used as a platform for people to attack each other,” Latheefa stressed.....
