Mohamad Sabu

KUALA LUMPUR: Defence Minister Mohamad Sabu said he is ready to work with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate whether his ministry’s personnel were involved in corruption.

In a statement yesterday, he said he welcomed the commission’s actions and his ministry was also willing to give its full commitment and cooperation to the MACC.

Under any situation, the MACC may prosecute individuals involved using the existing legal channels, he said.

“In view of my earlier statement in Parliament in the investigations of my ministry, led by former Auditor-General of Malaysia Ambrin Buang, I welcome the MACC to investigate anyone in the ministry or in my office,� he said.

Mohamad said he would not compromise on integrity.

Yesterday, MACC deputy chief commissioner (operation) Datuk Seri Azam Baki confirmed that he was investigating
Mohamad’s political assistant on charges of receiving RM800,000 from various parties to help him resolve his debt problems and be cleared as a bankrupt. — Bernama
