KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) deputy public prosecutor investigating SRC International says he was unaware of a transfer order to the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) until it was reported in the media.
Ahmad Shazalee Abdul Khairi, who is with the MACC’s special operations division, said he was also “shocked” over the sudden move.
“I am also shocked. I am still coming to MACC, no one has told me anything about a transfer order,” Ahmad Shazalee said Monday.
This comes after a news portal reported that the DPP was given an abrupt order to return to the AGC though his secondment was meant to be extended until 2017.
It was unclear when the transfer order was issued or when it took effect.
SRC International is a former subsidiary of state-owned investment arm 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB).
In August, Ahmad Shazalee was the first of six MACC officers questioned by police, who were investigating an alleged leak of documents related to the 1MDB special task force investigation.
Police had also raided Ahmad Shazalee’s house in Precinct 11, Putrajaya and the office of MACC’s Special Operations Body in Precinct 3.
Boxes of files and laptops were seized from the agency.
