Allow MACC space to investigate top sports official - Syed Saddiq

The Youth and Sports Ministry will leave it to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate a top sports official who was reported to have been detained for abuse of power yesterday.
Its minister, Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman said he was confident MACC will conduct their investigations in a fair and transparent manner.
“It is better we give MACC the space to conduct investigations. I am not sure why he was detained, so let MACC handle it,” he said when asked to comment on the matter.
The top official was reported to have been detained today to facilitate investigations under Section 23 of the MACC Act, purportedly for alleged abuse of power.

MACC deputy chief commissioner Azam Baki was reported to have confirmed the arrest and said that the Putrajaya magistrate’s court had granted a three-day remand order to facilitate investigations until Sunday.
Syed Sadiq was speaking to reporters after attending a sponsorship presentation by Genting Malaysia Berhad Le Tour de Langkawi (LTdL) 2020, organisers Human Voyage (M) Sdn Bhd at Menara KBS here.
In the ceremony, Genting Malaysia Bhd vice-president (Corporate Relations and Communications) Kay Prakash presented a RM5 million sponsorship to Human Voyage chief operating officer Shahaizereen Abdul Hamid.
