Former MACC officer lodges reports against Najib


KUALA LUMPUR: A former high ranking Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer has come forward to lodge reports against former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak .

Datuk Abdul Razak Idris, former MACC investigations and intelligence director, lodged two reports at the graft busting agency on Monday morning: one alleging that Najib had used his position for gratification and the other for allegedly owning unexplained properties.

"I will also discuss with the officers here if I should lodge another report here or with the police under Section 217 and 218 of the Penal Code where certain public servants saved a person from punishment or property from forfeiture.

"The reason I am lodging the reports today is so that the MACC can take swift action," he told reporters before entering the MACC headquarters here to lodge his reports.

"We also don't know if the current Chief Commissioner Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad will be replaced by his predecessor Tan Sri Abu Kassim," he added.

When asked why he decided to only lodge a report now, Abdul Razak claimed that it would have been of no use back then as no action would have been taken.

He added that it was also a "former boss" of his who urged him to lodge the reports but declined to name this person.

"Some are also worried about me for boldly coming out to lodge a report but it's alright.

"I'm already 69 years old. If I die, I die for the country," Abdul Razak said.
