PUTRAJAYA: Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed (pic) will step down as the chief commissioner of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) on Aug 1, says Government Chief Secretary Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa.

Ali said the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, as per sub-section 5(3) of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Act 2009 (Act 694), had consented to the application by Abu Kassim, 55, to end his service in that capacity by serving his one month's notice.

In a statement issued Thursday, Ali said Abu Kassim would continue to serve as an anti-corruption service officer until his mandatory retirement on Dec 6, 2020.

Abu Kassim was appointed MACC chief commissioner on Jan 1, 2010.

"The Government expresses its gratitude to Tan Sri Abu Kassim who has served the country well in his capacity as the MACC chief commissioner," Ali said.

He said that with Abu Kassim at its helm, the MACC had discharged its functions with excellence in line with its vision to create a Malaysian society free of corruption based on spiritual values and high morals. – Bernama
