THERE was no leak of information on the investigation in relation to the Penang undersea tunnel project, says Datuk Paul Low.

“The media has reported news on the case. But the information published in the news reports were not from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Com­­mission (MACC) investigation documents,” the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department said in a written reply to Lim Guan Eng (DAP-Bagan) yesterday.

Low also said that the MACC had not lodged a police report over the news report.

Lim questioned why the MACC had practised double standards in the case and alleged a leak of information in the undersea tunnel project.

Low pointed out that the MACC lodged a report in relation to corruption investigations involving a former Johor state executive councillor as there was a breach of “classified information”.

“There was a leak of a written statement and the existence of a false scheduled payment related to that case,” he said.

Low also noted that the MACC had carried out investigations against politicians from the Government and the Opposition.

“Between 2013 and last year, the MACC opened 71 investigation papers involving politicians from Barisan Nasional and 21 against Opposition politicians,” he said.
