The MACC should not be a “victim of complacency” in its task despite having succeeded in bringing several high-profile alleged kleptocracy cases to court, including that of former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak.
DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang said this despite the assurance by former MACC chief commissioner Mohd Shukri Abdull that he (Shukri) had accomplished his mission of setting the anti-graft body “on the right track” during his tenure at the helm.
Since Shukri took over the helm of the MACC following the 14th general election, the MACC has investigated and brought a string of former leaders under the BN regime to court.
This includes Najib, former deputy prime minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, former Felda chairperson Isa Samad, former federal territories minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor and former Sabah chief minister Musa Aman.
Lim said that despite this, the MACC and Putrajaya would be remiss to assume that these cases would mean Malaysia was already on the road to becoming a nation of integrity.
