Littoral combat ship probe still ongoing, says Azam Baki


GUA MUSANG: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has never stopped the investigations into the construction of the Littoral Combat Ships (LCS), says its chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki.

He said that the investigation into the case is currently at the MACC level, contacting relevant parties abroad to collect information.

"I deny the allegation of outside parties claiming that the investigation of the LCS case has been stopped, when in fact, the investigation into this case is still active and ongoing.

"Apart from that, the MACC is also making an application for Mutual Legal Assistance through the Attorney General's Chambers, for some (documents and evidence) that we need,” he said.

He said this to reporters after officiating the new MACC Gua Musang branch office, on the 1st floor of the Bangunan Persekutuan, here, on Thursday (April 25).

Azam said that the investigation into the case took a long time because the MACC had made several applications, including tracing the money.
