MACC probes Prasarana over Rafizi's revelations

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has paid national transportation company Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd a visit this afternoon following revelations made by PKR strategic director Rafizi Ramli over Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s intervention in the Ampang LRT line project.

Sources said they came in after 4pm, but officials inside Prasarana have denied that it was a raid.

azlanPrasarana media affairs manager Azhar Ghazali told Malaysiakini it was a “fact-finding mission”. 

“It is not a raid, it is a fact-finding mission. There was a claim made by Rafizi, so we (Prasarana) are being responsive and proactive,” he said.

“Prasarana had signed an integrity pact with MACC last February, and the anti-graft authority had set up an office in Prasarana’s office in Wisma UOA, Bangsar. There is already an MACC office at our office at level 26. Since they are part of our establishment, so they come,” explained Azhar.

He, however, has no clue how many MACC officers came to Prasarana but added that no documents were taken away by the MACC.

Another source claimed that MACC may be compiling information over what had been alleged by Rafizi. However, MACC investigations director Mustafar Ali did not make any comments when contacted by Malaysiakini to confirm the visit.

NONEToday, Rafizi (right) had lodged a police report over possible abuse of power by Najib as he claimed he trusted the police more compared to the graft-fighting body.

Rafizi had two days ago alleged that Najib had interferedin the RM1 million LRT Ampang line extension project so that a consortium led by George Kent Bhd, which allegedly submitted a higher bid than others, is to get the job.
Following his revelation, the MACC visited Rafizi the same day.

Meanwhile, Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Syed Ismail Syed Azizan, when asked whether the CCID would be investigating Rafizi’s report, said he would have to look into the matter.

“I am presently outstation in Malacca and I will check it out. I will provide information as soon as there are details,” he toldMalaysiakini.
