KUALA LUMPUR: The Ja­batan Au­dit Ne­gara (JAN) has con­firmed that a memo which has gone vi­ral say­ing the Au­di­tor-Gen­eral was tested pos­i­tive for Covid-19 and would be quar­an­tined in hospi­tal was is­sued by him.

How­ever, JAN said it was meant to be an in­ter­nal memo and not for shar­ing with ex­ter­nal par­ties.

The memo was is­sued by Au­di­tor Gen­eral Datuk Nik Az­man Ab­dul Ma­jid to the se­nior man­age­ment.

“The aim of the memo is to en­sure smooth ad­min­is­tra­tion of JAN in the ab­sence of the Au­di­tor Gen­eral,” JAN said in a state­ment yes­ter­day.

“The rea­son why Covid-19 was men­tioned in the memo was to in­di­cate the nec­es­sary and prompt ac­tions, as well as mea­sures, (to) be taken to curb the pos­si­bil­ity of the spread of Covid-19 among JAN of­fi­cers and staff mem­bers,” the state­ment said.

JAN said all close con­tacts had been no­ti­fied for ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tions and the af­fected build­ing, Block F2 of Com­plex F in Precinct 1, Putrajaya had been sani­tised and dis­in­fected on Fri­day. Ber­nama
