MACC lodges report on leaked Azmin 'graft file'

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has lodged a police report on prominent blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin's allegation that he has obtained a confidential report proving that PKR deputy president Azmin Ali was 'being investigated for corruption’ in 1995.

Anwar was then deputy prime minister, and Azmin was his private secretary.
MACC investigation director Mustafar Ali told Malay daily Berita Harian that the panel will discuss and decide whether the allegation should be probed.

“Criminal investigation has no time frame although it is an old case,” he was quoted as saying.

The police report was filed at Putrajaya police station last night, he said.

“Any further information related to this case will be known after we present our report to the operations evaluation panel (tomorrow).”

azlanRaja Petra (left) had made the exposeyesterday on his website Malayia Today, claiming that he has obtained documents that prove Azmin ‘was involved in graft’.

Raja Petra said “a thick file of hundreds of documents” was handed over to him by a “very disillusioned” retired MACC officer last month who wanted to expose corrupt officers.

The file contains police reports, investigation reports, recorded and signed statements, minutes, statements of accounts, bank statements, copies of cheques, vouchers, contract notes and other documents, he claimed.

Raja Petra said the file showed that the Anti-Corruption Agency (now the MACC) had gathered concrete evidence to arrest and prosecute Azmin for corruption involving millions of ringgit.

However, he claimed that director-general Shafee Yahaya had buried the file, tagging it as ‘no further action’ on Anwar’s alleged instruction.
