No changes in MACC line-up, says Latheefa

MACC chief Latheefa Koya says her deputy, Azam Baki (right), will be back on duty after his sick leave.

PETALING JAYA: Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief Latheefa Koya has denied reports that changes will be made in the organisation’s line-up after her deputy, Azam Baki, reportedly went on sick leave.

“I refer to the news report claiming there will be changes in the MACC purportedly due to the deputy chief commissioner’s recent sick leave.

“The report is uncalled for and without any basis whatsoever,” she said.

Latheefa said Azam has been discharged from hospital and is expected to officially resume duties on Aug 22.

A news portal this evening reported that changes may be expected in MACC after the deputy chief commissioner went on hospital leave, supposedly from a kidney illness.
