PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has rubbished allegations from a portal that it had not acted on RM1.25bil solar hybrid project in Sarawak.

The anti-graft agency clarified that initial investigations began early April, a month before the 14th general election, after it received information from the public.

It has also seized related documents from the Education Ministry, in accordance with the law provided for under the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Act 2009, it said in a statement Monday.

The MACC will go through the documents to determine if there were elements of corruption.

Members of the public are urged to be patient until the MACC completes its investigation.

According to a report by whistleblower site Sarawak Report, former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had purportedly instructed the Education Ministry in January 2017 to appoint a company over a solar hybrid project for 369 schools located in the rural heartlands of Sarawak.
