KUCHING: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's headquarters in Putrajaya is investigating high-profile cases in Sarawak for alleged corrupt practices, says state MACC director Razim Mohd Noor.
"For cases involving the 'big fish', the headquarters will handle the investigation. Any decision or action depends on the headquarters," he told reporters at the state MACC Gawai Raya gathering here on Wednesday (July 3).
Razim said he did not have access to the investigation, as the state MACC only acted as liaison.
However, he said the state MACC had received more than one report from the public, alleging corruption involving high-profile individuals.
"Some of the cases have been investigated a long time ago. But we submit the reports to headquarters nonetheless, and we have not received any instruction from headquarters," he said.
Last month, DAP's Padungan assemblyman Wong King Wei urged new MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya to investigate Sarawak's "big fish" for corruption.
State Reform Party Sarawak and Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak Baru had also called on Latheefa to go after corrupt politicians in the state.
