PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Advisory Board is scheduled to hold a special press conference to, among others, address allegations of conflict of interest involving chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki.
The much awaited press conference will be presided by the board chairman Tan Sri Abu Zahar Ujang, to be held at the MACC headquarters.
Abu Zahar had earlier said that he would be speaking to the media on Wednesday (Jan 5).
This comes after Prof Dr Edmund Terence Gomez resigned from the MACC's Consultation and Corruption Prevention Panel.
In a letter to the panel's chairperson Tan Sri Borhan Dolah on Dec 27, Gomez said that his resignation was in protest over the panel's inaction with regards to allegations regarding Azam.
Azam allegedly has a business interest in a publicly-listed company.
Gomez had been appointed to the MACC panel from June 1, 2020, and would have ended his term on May 31,2022.
