PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has received a complaint accusing an Umno supreme council member of corruption.
In a statement Wednesday, the MACC confirmed receiving a report claiming that the unnamed supreme council member had been involved in misappropriation of funds for a software development project for the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).
The MACC said it received the report from the police, which in turn had received a complaint from a member of the public.
"MACC will investigate the report prior to opening an investigation into the allegations.
"If necessary, the individual involved will be called in to give his statement," the MACC said.
It said it would also work with the MCMC to obtain information on the accusation.
