The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) special operations division chief Datuk Bahri Mohamad Zain has vowed to find out who ordered the current spate of action being taken against MACC officials over the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) probe, Malaysiakini reported today.
Bahri’s division office was raided by the police today as the latter continue to breath down MACC’s neck for alleged leaks in the 1MDB probe, with seven MACC officers having been called in for questioning to date.
“I will find the perpetrators who are ordering the arrests. By God, I will find the perpetrators till kingdom come,” he was quoted as saying.
Two MACC officers have been arrested over the probe, though they have since been released.
“We do not have time to play politics as we are doing our job as entrusted by the public on what they expect us to do with regard to this investigation,” he added.
“You may have (political) powers, but I have Allah,” he told the news portal.
Bahri was among those who were questioned over the alleged leak, though he had insisted that MACC was not behind the leak.
He said that the division’s probe on SRC International, a former 1MDB linked company, was being conducted “day and night”.
He insisted that the police’s actions, which also included a raid on a deputy public prosecutor’s office three days ago, was “disturbing” MACC’s investigations, and that it is in violation of Section 48 of the MACC Act. – TMI
