PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has lodged a police report against individuals whom they claim have plotted to tarnish the reputation of its chief commissioner, Latheefa Koya.

The report was lodged by the anti-graft chief's special legal officer, Sasha Lyna Abdul Latif.

She and Latheefa's special media officer Mohd Roshazuan Roslan arrived at Putrajaya police headquarters at 10.30am on Tuesday (Jan 14).

Sasha said the report was made so that police can investigate the move by certain individuals for their "criminal plot" to besmirch the MACC chief commissioner's reputation.

"We are also lodging the report because what these individuals are doing is also tarnishing the integrity and image of the commission," she said.

Sasha Lyna said that she has also handed over evidence, as well as the identity of the individuals whom the MACC believe are behind the "criminal plot".

She, however, declined to name the persons and the evidence that were handed over to police.

On Monday (Jan 13), Latheefa claimed a “criminal plot” to besmirch her reputation has emerged, following the commission’s disclosure of several telephone recordings involving high-ranking officials, including former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife.

She said despite this, she would not falter from discharging her duties as the country’s top graft buster.

The MACC had released nine sets of audio recording believed to be that of Najib and other former top officials on Jan 8.
