MACC lodges police report on criminal plot to smear commissioner’s reputation

PUTRAJAYA: The names of several individuals, including a lawyer, were handed over to police by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) today. It earlier made a police report over a criminal plot to tarnish the image of Latheefa Koya, its chief commissioner.

MACC special legal officer Shasha Lyna Abdul Latif lodged the report at the Putrajaya district police headquarters at about 9.30am before handing over all relevant evidence of the plot to investigators.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Mazlan Mansor said the report would be examined before police decided on the next course of action.

On Monday, Latheefa said she would not be intimidated by any attempts by certain quarters to taint her reputation with fabricated material.

She said a lawyer was among those behind the plot following the graft body’s release of audio recordings of phone conversations involving certain high-profile individuals to the public last week.

Latheefa said she intended to send a clear message to those behind the plot that she did not feel intimidated and would continue executing her duties as MACC chief.

“The public has placed its trust on the commission to clean the country from the scourge of corruption. I intend to carry out this duty despite personal attacks and threats against me now or in the future.”
