KUCHING, July 4: Pakatan Harapan (PH) Sarawak applauded the move by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Putrajaya in investigating high profile cases in the state for alleged corrupt practices. 

PH Sarawak chairman Chong Chieng Jen emphasised in a press statement today that the coalition had been calling on the MACC to probe high-profile individuals in Sarawak since last year.  

“In January 2019, I personally submitted some documents related to alleged corrupt practices involving the state government to MACC. 

“We are glad that finally some actions are being taken. We hope the outcome will be forthcoming and there will be no further delay,” he added. 

Chong, who is also Deputy Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, said the people of Sarawak had waited long enough for these ‘big fishes’ to be brought to the book.

He was commenting on the statement by MACC Sarawak director Razim Mohd Noor yesterday that MACC’s headquarters in Putrajaya was handling the high-profile cases in Sarawak. 

He also revealed that MACC had received more than one report from the public, alleging corruption involving high-profile individuals.— DayakDaily
