PETALING JAYA: Former Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Dzulkifli Ahmad (pic) has forgiven his successor for calling him the country's traitor.

He said Datuk Seri Mohd Shukri Abdull has apologised to him via WhatsApp.

"As the bigger person, he apologised to me regarding his statement which should not even be uttered against me in his press conference yesterday.

"I am glad and I accept his apology and the both of us have considered the issue to be settled," he said in a statement.

During Mohd Shukri's maiden press conference as chief commissioner on Tuesday (May 22), he said he could not put himself to work under Dzulkifli because he considered him to be a traitor to the country.

Dzulkifli said the statement was a strong accusation towards him and he viewed it seriously.

"Being in the civil service for almost 25 years, I carried out my duties with full responsibilities, professionalism, gave my utmost commitment and I never at any time, was or acted as a traitor to the country," he said.
