PETALING JAYA: The contracts of five officers who worked under human resources minister V Sivakumar have been terminated, says a source in the ministry.
The source also confirmed that another officer has been transferred out of the human resources ministry to the public services department (JPA).
FMT has reached out to Sivakumar for confirmation.
Last month, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) arrested three of Sivakumar’s aides and released them after their four-day remand expired on April 17.
Their arrests were believed to be in connection with an investigation into the approval of migrant worker quotas.
Sources previously told FMT that two of the three aides had returned to work while another had been suspended with pay.
Several quarters later called on Sivakumar to go on leave or resign, after he was summoned by the MACC to give his statement.
However, Sivakumar maintained that he will not resign, citing how Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim had also said there was no need for him to resign.
