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.
