Sivakumar says will cooperate fully with investigation


PETALING JAYA: Human Resources Minister V. Sivakumar says he will give his full cooperation for any probe by authorities following the arrest of one of his aides.

He said that he was aware of the arrest but could not reveal more as the case was now being investigated.

"My ministry and I will give full cooperation to the relevant authorities if necessary.

"I hope that the media will not make any speculation or assumptions that can affect any parties until the relevant investigative agency has completed their probe," he said in a statement on Thursday (April 13).

Earlier in the morning, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) detained Sivakumar's senior officer during a raid at the ministry.

It is learnt that the aide was detained together with a foreign worker recruitment agent, believed to be in connection with a case involving the recruitment of foreign workers.
