PETALING JAYA: A group calling itself the Arrest Azam Baki Action Committee says it will organise a protest to urge the authorities to take action in the share-trading case involving Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki.

In a statement on Telegram on Tuesday (Jan 18), the group said it would stage a rally outside Sogo in Kuala Lumpur at 11am on Saturday (Jan 22).

The committee wants the authorities to arrest Azam immediately, initiate legal proceedings against him and reshuffle the MACC while putting it under the purview of Parliament.

"The rakyat have been left without a satisfactory explanation from the government so the Arrest Azam Baki Action Committee will head to the streets to protest peacefully," the statement read.

It listed 17 civil society organisations and eight political bodies as part of the action committee.
