KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) seized files from the office of Batu Tiga assemblyman Rodziah Ismail and the Klang Municipal Council as the probe widens into the alleged abuse of funds by assemblymen or their agents.
A team of MACC officers went to the state secretariat building in Shah Alam where Rodziah, a state exco, had an office there.
Commisssion officers asked for the files including vouchers handled by her special officer to be handed over.
It is learnt that one of Rodziah’s special officer is the one under investigation.
Sources said the staff in Rodziah’s office gave the MACC officers photocopies of the documents instead of the originals.
The officers then followed up their investigations by visiting the Klang Municipal Council and took files of projects carried out, or being carried out, as well as payment vouchers.
Commission director of investigation Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdull confirmed the officers took files from the two places but declined to elaborate.
Rodziah, when contacted, said she was not in her office when the MACC came at about 3pm.
She said the officers had asked for vouchers made out to the Klang Land and District office on allocations for the Sementa constituency.
