KUALA LUMPUR – The police had completed their investigation on the high profile audio recording revealed in last January by the former Chief Commissioner of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), Latheefa Koya.
Minister at Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan said, the report on the investigation has been submitted to the Attorney-General’s Chamber on 19 June for further action.
“The audio recording exposed by the MACC in January 2020 was at the discretionary power and did not violate any providence of the law,” he said in a written reply to the Member of Parliament (Tanjong Karang-BN), Tan Sri Noh Omar who questioned about the integrity, credibility and professionalism of the MACC by revealing the high profile audio recording to the public.
Earlier, Latheefa defended her action in a news conference by playing nine audio recordings involving several high profile individuals.
According to her, the recordings exposed power abuse, criminal breach of trust by falsifying documents, disclosure of classified information, threat to national security, criminal conspiracy, thus, the commission chose to reveal it to the media so that the people are aware of the situation.
The police had also called the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor to get their statements to assist into the investigation following the audio clips revealed by Latheefa. -MalaysiaGazette
