KUALA LUMPUR: The higher expenditure of more than RM6mil incurred by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission last year was due to the setting up of the commission on Jan 1, 2009 to replace the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA).

The commission said the higher expenditure reported in the Auditor-General’s Report 2009 had already been “approved via the General Warrant No. 3 Year 2009 dated May 26, 2010 which was passed by Parliament”.

“The higher expenditure did not mean that the commission had violated any Treasury instruction or breached any financial management procedure.

“On the contrary, it only involved the payment of emolument following the restructuring of the commission effective Jan 1, 2009,” it said in a press statement here on Friday.

The commission was commenting the report by the PAS party organ, Harakah, last Monday headlined “Why MACC spent more than its allocation?” based on the Auditor-General’s Report 2009 which stated that the commission used a supplementary expen- diture of RM6,831,600 from the Consolidated Fund for the year 2009.

In its Client’s Charter, the commission pledged to prevent and eliminate corruption in a firm and fair manner, without prejudice and in accordance with the current laws and regulations.
