MACC: PROBE STILL ON
THERE is no let up on the investigations into the Johor real estate corruption scandal, despite the release of state Exco member Datuk Abd Latif Bandi on bail yesterday.
A source told the New Straits Times that Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had built a solid case against those found to be involved in the graft case.
The source said the anti-graft body was working towards bringing those responsible to book.
“The investigation is still on, and there is no let up in the case. There is evidence that will pinpoint the people who were responsible for committing the offence,” said the source.
Asked to comment on whether investigations had been completed following Latif ’s release on bail yesterday, Johor MACC director Datuk Azmi Alias said investigations were ongoing.
He declined to elaborate further.
Yesterday, Latif was brought to Johor Baru Court Complex at 9.10am at the end of his sevenday remand order.
Johor Baru magistrate’s court registrar Saba’aton Daud set bail at RM200,000. Latif posted the bail.
