MACC to nab Sabah graft suspects soon
KOTA KINABALU: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is expected to arrest a number of officers from a government agency here soon.
Sabah MACC director Datuk Sazali Salbi said the arrests were expected to be conducted over three days beginning Aug 20.
He said more than five suspects were expected to be arrested.
“We have set up a strategy to conduct the operation and investigations are ongoing,” he said at the Jalur Gemilang campaign at the state Federal Administrative Complex here yesterday.
Sazali said MACC has also lined up an operation against another agency next month.
He said the state MACC had briefed its headquarters in Putrajaya about the upcoming arrests and the plan has been approved.
“We will hold a press conference (in a few weeks) to divulge more on both operations.
“MACC will also call up anyone, even (the suspects’) wives or siblings, to assist the investigations.”
Earlier, Sabah Federal Secretary Datuk Nor Rizan Mohd Thani distributed the Jalur Gemilang to 26 government departments.
“This programme is a gesture of support, collaboration and commitment from federal departments and agencies of the flag-waving campaign.”
Nor Rizan also flagged off 11 vehicles with 50 participants who would make the trip to SM Inanam and Kampung Tatahan community hall yesterday.
The Jalur Gemilang programme was jointly organised by the Information Department and State Federal Secretary office. By Olivia Miwil
