MACC denies allegations being used as ‘political weapon’

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has vehemently denied allegations that it was used as a “political weapon” while carrying out its actions.

It said in a statement on Saturday(March 6) that it was an independent agency that always ensured its actions were in accordance with the law and without political leanings.

It added that the accusations were unfounded and irresponsible, and could tarnish its reputation.

The Pakatan Harapan presidential council had on Friday (March 5) alleged that Perikatan Nasional had misused government agencies such as the MACC, Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) as well as police to pressure Opposition MPs to support it.
