Azam: MACC yet to probe 101 projects

MELAKA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Agency (MACC) has yet to open investigation papers on 101 direct negotiation projects approved under the Pakatan Harapan administration, says chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki, adding that MACC was still analysing all the projects for elements of corruption.

“Under the practice of the Treasury, there are three methods to issue tenders for projects and one of them is through direct negotiation.

“We are now studying the list of companies which received the projects and to evaluate if there are elements of corruption in the negotiation,” he said during a question and answer session at an anti-corruption programme with southern zone media here yesterday.

On Aug 24, Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz told the Dewan Rakyat that Pakatan in its 22-month administration had approved 101 government projects or procurements valued at RM6.61bil through direct negotiation. — Bernama
