MACC denies being used as political weapon

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has “vehemently” dispelled accusations that it was used as a “political weapon” in carrying out its duty.

Asserting that it was an independent agency, MACC said it had always ensured its actions were in accordance with the law and without political leanings.

“Such allegations were unfounded and irresponsible, and could tarnish our reputation, ” MACC said in a statement.

On Friday, the Pakatan Harapan presidential council alleged that Perikatan Nasional had misused government agencies such as the MACC and the police force to pressure opposition MPs into supporting the government.

They claimed that such agencies had been used as “political weapons” in order to shore up support for the “minority Perikatan government”.
