PETALING JAYA: Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has urged the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to focus on bigger, unresolved corruption cases.
His statement came after Sungai Buloh MP R Sivarasa’s nephew was charged for corruption in the Kuala Lumpur sessions court today.
“I am following issues related to officers and former officers at the Sungai Buloh parliamentary public service centre, Naveen K Rasiah and Nico Kam, who were charged by the MACC today.
“I feel retaliation is the motive behind the probe into these two individuals, while other cases involving top leaders are ignored,” Anwar said in a statement today.
He also said he noticed there were other political leaders who displayed their extreme wealth but no action was taken to investigate them.
“I would like to urge the MACC to focus on the big cases that have yet to be resolved,” he said.
Sivarasa had warned yesterday that hauling Naveen and Kam to court would be seen as an act of reprisal for speaking out against the MACC chief Azam Baki.
Sivarasa was the first MP to raise the issue of Azam’s share ownership in Parliament.
Naveen and Kam were summoned to the MACC office on Jan 21 and were told that they would be charged with offences relating to events that occurred in 2017.
