POH – Military veterans have lauded Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission chief Latheefa Koya for its bold step to publicly release audio recordings of conversations between former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and several prominent public personalities.
The MACC’s move was praised as this is a step to restore confidence in public institutions.
The tapes contained secret recorded conversations involving former prime minister Najib Razak and other personalities between January to July 2016.
“This is a positive step towards institutionalising the MACC as a fully independent body,” said National Patriots Association (Patriot) president Mohamed Arshad Raji.
Arshad acknowledged criticisms against MACC for releasing the recordings and said it is up to the courts to judge if the MACC had breached any legal principles with its disclosure.
