PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission (MACC) was professional and transparent and was not unfair as claimed by former finance minister Lim Guan Eng, says chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki.

"I don't want to comment about his (Lim's) claim of unfair treatment by the MACC. We have always been professional and transparent in our work," he said after launching the MACC PUBG mobile i-challenge on Tuesday (Aug 11).

On claims by Lim that he had to wear the orange-coloured remand outfit while spending the night at MACC lock-up, Azam said this matter was under the discretion of investigation officers and the officer in charge of the lock-up.

"I have said many times that this is under their discretion," he said.

Lim had claimed that he had been unfairly treated by the MACC when he had to spend the night in the lock-up.

Responding to a question, Azam said that all those involved in Lim's case had been charged.

On Tuesday, the former Penang chief minister pleaded not guilty to a charge of abuse of power

Lim was charged in Penang alongside his wife Betty Chew Gek Cheng and businesswoman Phang Li Koon at the Butterworth Sessions Court.

Lim is also facing charges involving the Penang undersea tunnel project.
