KUALA LUMPUR: Two more Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers have been detained by police over a robbery involving losses of over RM700,000.

The anti-graft watchdog confirmed this via a statement on Thursday (Dec 16).

"The commission has given full cooperation to the police in its investigations into a crime involving MACC officers.

"We confirm that we have helped the police by surrendering two more officers to help with investigations," the statement read.

It added that the commission would not compromise with or protect any officers involved in crime and urged that investigations be expedited.

On Sunday (Dec 12), MACC confirmed that one of its officers has been detained by police to assist in investigations into a gang robbery case on Friday (Dec 10) in Kuala Lumpur.

On Saturday, a news portal reported that two individuals, including an officer of an enforcement agency, were arrested by the police after they were suspected of being involved in a gang robbery at a house in Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, resulting in losses of over RM700,000.
