KUCHING: The Sarawak Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is awaiting further instructions from its headquarters over corruption allegations involving certain high profile individuals in the state.
“We have handed over the latest information on the claims to the headquarters and so far, have not received any instruction on action to be taken,” said Sarawak MACC director Razim Mohd Noor.
He said his office would investigate the matter if there were reports lodged.
However, if the reports concerned high profile individuals, the matter would be referred to the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya first, he told reporters after a press conference on the ‘Semarak Pertiwiku’ musical theatre, here today.
Razim said this in response to media reports yesterday which said more than 50 reports on corruption, including those which allegedly involved high profile personalities, had been lodged with the state MACC. — Bernama
