PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) wants the police to aprehend those responsible for the ‘cruel and inhumane’ murder of deputy public prosecutor (DPP) Kevin Morais.

While thanking the police for solving the case following Morias’s disappearance, MACC also urged justice for him.

“The MACC hopes that those who acted in a cruel and in an inhumane manner be brought to justice,” MACC said in a statement issued to the media.

Morais’ body was discovered by police at 6am Wednesday morning in a concrete filled oil drum in swamp along Jalan Subang 3 in Subang Jaya.

He went missing on Sept 4 while on his way to work and is believed to have been abducted and murdered.

Seven individuals, including a woman and a child, have been detained by police during investigations.

Meanwhile, the Anti-Corruption Advisory Board (ACAB) extended its condolences to the family of Morais.

“Kevin Morais was a DPP who was described as a friendly person and thoroughly committed to the corruption cases he handled for the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC),” its chairman Tunku Aziz Tunku Ibrahim said in a statement issued to the media.

He added that the loss of Morais would only strengthen the resolve to fight corruption at all levels of society.
