AG's office under lockdown (Updated)

PETALING JAYA: Attorney General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali confirmed that his office is currently under lockdown.

When contacted by theSun, Apandi replied in a brief message that police have barricaded the roads leading to his office.

Asked about a viral photo showing barbed wire in front of the Attorney General's Chambers, he said: "Yes, it appears so."

Earlier today, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the government would investigate government agencies and its heads for alleged corruption.

Commenting on the potential axing of government agency heads, Mahathir stressed that those who are found to be corrupt will be dealt with, in accordance with the law.

Among those he intends to probe include, Mohamed Apandi Ali, Election Commission (EC) chairman Tan Sri Mohd Hashim Abdullah, as well as the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

"Our intention is to go for people who have shown a tendency to be corrupt or who have committed known corrupt acts," he told reporters at Yayasan Al-bukhary, following the Pakatan Harapan (PH) presidential council meeting.
