Latheefa: MACC to review certain closed cases, especially those involving VIPs


GEORGE TOWN: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will review cases that have been closed or marked "no further action (NFA)" with controversial ones involving VIPs given priority, says Latheefa Koya.

"I have asked for all the files and will go through them to find out why they were closed or labelled NFA and I will need time to study them," said the MACC chief commissioner.

However, when asked, she said that the MACC would not re-open the bungalow case of former Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng.

"The case was tried in court and completed. As such there is no need to re-open the case unless there is some new evidence," she said at a press conference after a briefing at the MACC Penang headquarters here on Tuesday (July 23).

Latheefa said integrity officers from MACC had been loaned to all government departments on a rotation basis to keep an eye on things.

"We want our officers to be wherever public money is involved and those who undermine them will get into trouble," she added.
