PETALING JAYA: Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali (pic) says there is no lockdown of his office in Putrajaya.

"It is not true. There is no lockdown. My officers are free to go in and out of the AG's Chambers (AGC)," he said.

Asked why police have barricaded the roads leading to his office, Apandi said it was for security reasons during and after GE14.

He said the security measures applied to all key Government offices in Putrajaya.

He was commenting on a viral picture showing barbed wire in front of the AGC.

The photo started going viral after Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad told reporters earlier today that some government agencies and their heads would be investigated.

Dr Mahathir said that he will "look into" Apandi, Election Commission chairman Tan Sri Mohd Hashim Abdullah, as well as the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

"Our intention is to go for people who have shown a tendency to be corrupt or who have committed known corrupt acts," said Dr Mahathir at a press conference after a Pakatan Harapan presidential council meeting this morning.
