This follows complaint filed by Laskar Siber Malaysia president Datuk Lokman Noor Adam
PUTRAJAYA : The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission today opened an investigation paper on a land reclamation project in Melaka believed to involve graft.
In a statement, the agency said it has received a complaint from Laskar Siber Malaysia president Datuk Lokman Noor Adam on the matter.
“The complaints made at the MACC headquarters will be attached to the investigation paper. MACC will conduct a thorough investigation into this case, covering all the aspects raised.”
Lokman said his team has received information that there were individuals accepting bribes to influence the government in awarding the project.
“MACC needs to carry out an immediate investigation to ensure Umno’s good name is not tarnished before the individual is named as an election candidate.
“This can damage Umno’s name and jeopardise the chances of other clean candidates,” he told reporters at the anti-graft agency’s headquarters here.
