KUCHING, April 16: Sarawak has had no corruption cases involving high-profile individuals for the first three months this year.

In stating this, Sarawak Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) director Mohd Zaki Hassan was confirming the statement of his superior, MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki.

“Corruption cases in Sarawak are many, but there are none involving high-profile individuals for the first three months,” Zaki told reporters after attending Ihya Ramadan and breaking fast programme at Darul Hana Patingan Mosque in Kuching today.

On February 28, during the 2022 Integrity Talk entitled ‘Integrity, Governance and Anti-Corruption’ in Sibu, Azam said there are no major corruption cases reported in Sarawak, and the cases are rather usual and generic.

However, MACC on April 8 remanded eight individuals to assist in investigations into a bribery case involving projects worth more than RM2.3 billion. Of the suspects, two were remanded in Kuching.

Joining Zaki at the event were Malaysian Anti-Corruption Foundation (YARM) Sarawak chairman Awang Mohammad Putra Awang Sopeian and Darul Hana Patingan Mosque chairman Zamhari Hashim. — DayakDaily
