Tibai wants MACC to probe Azmin

May 30, 2012

This is after an article by Raja Petra yesterday that Anwar who was then the deputy prime minister had covered up investigations involving Azmin's corruption case.

PUTRAJAYA: Tolak Individu Bernama Anwar Ibrahim (Tibai) today urged the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate Gombak MP Azmin Ali for a corruption case when he was Anwar Ibrahim’s private secretary.

The group reiterated that it would hold a demonstration in front of the MACC headquarters if action was not taken in a week.

Mursyidul Am Tibai, Zahid Md Arip, said the call was made following revelation by the Malaysia Today online portal where Raja Petra Kamarudin had claimed that Anwar, who was then the deputy prime minister, had covered up investigations involving Azmin’s corruption case that ran into millions of ringgit.

“There are claims made by senior Anti-Corruption Agency officers that there was a directive to stop investigations against Azmin and to close the files although there was enough evidence to detain and charge him. So we want the MACC to reopen the file,” he told reporters after lodging a report at the MACC office here today.

Yesterday, Raja Petra had alleged that Anwar used his influence to stop investigations against Azmin, claiming he had received a confidential file from a senior ACA officer dated May 15, 1995, in London last month.
