MACC briefs Selangor Sultan on corruption cases

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has briefed Selangor Ruler Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah on the increasing number of corruption cases, particularly in the state.

MACC chief Datuk Seri Azam Baki briefed Sultan Sharafuddin on Thursday (Aug 5) during a two-hour audience at Istana Bukit Kayangan in Shah Alam.

Also present during the briefing was Raja Muda Selangor Tengku Amir Shah Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.

“His Royal Highness expressed concerns over the latest developments and hopes that the MACC is able to conduct transparent and thorough investigations so that the perpetrators brought to court will not escape easily,” said a statement by the Selangor palace on Instagram.

It added that Sultan Sharafuddin urged that the corruption cases in court were speeded up and that the courts do not postpone cases without solid reasons as the people were fed up with seeing these corruption cases dragging on for too long.

“His Royal Highness also hoped that corruption in Selangor can be completely eradicated so that it does not become a bigger problem that can harm future generations and damage society,” added the statement.

Sultan Sharafuddin recently issued a stern warning to those in the state administration allegedly mired in dishonest and corrupt conduct.

His Royal Highness said state awards conferred on government officials and politicians found guilty of graft would be revoked.

The Ruler said he was saddened when informed recently that several state officials were involved in corruption as this could damage the administration’s image as well as the reputation of the state government's civil servants.
