KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 2 ― The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is in the midst of analysing 8,000 payment vouchers and 12 tonnes of files and documents related to the alleged corruption involving a state government agency in Sabah.
MACC deputy chief commissioner (Operations) Datuk Azam Baki said the commission was entering the final stage of its investigation and was expected to submit their investigation paper to the Attorney-General's Chambers soon.
He said they had taken almost a month to analyse the payment vouchers issued between 2008 to 2016.
“The vouchers were extracted from the tens of thousands of files on claims for payments involving all Sabah government's departments,” he said in a statement here yesterday.
Azam said the investigation was done meticulously by a team of 137 MACC officers to ensure that all evidence were properly gathered to prevent any problems when the case was presented in court.
He said the MACC had also obtained remand orders on 28 individuals, comprising a former director, two former deputy directors, 23 engineers and technicians, and two civilians linked to the case.
The MACC had also recorded statements of over 200 witnesses and frozen RM114.5 million in cash, trust funds, movable and immovable assets traced in the country and overseas, during the investigation which began on October 4. ― Bernama
