MACC will probe MyKad sale to foreigners if there's clear proof - Latheefa

Anti-graft agency chief says she has yet to receive any formal complaints on reports on the matter. 

A - The MACC will conduct investigations into recent claims that the MyKad was being sold to Chinese nationals in Penang if there is clear evidence regarding the case. MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Beebi Koya said so far, she had not received any formal complaints or reports on the matter. "We have not received any formal complaints...so we are looking into it, if the syndicate does exist, we will start investigating, because cases involving the sale of identity cards or issuance of false identity cards are not a new thing. "So far, we have not received the information directly, and only got it through news reports," she told reporters after paying a courtesy call on Sabah Chief Minister Mohd Shafie Apdal at his office at the Sabah State Administrative Centre in Kota Kinabalu today. Sabah MACC Director Sazali Salbi was also present. Latheefa said however, the MACC did not rely solely on official information, and could act without any complaints being lodged if there were strong grounds to do so. "If we get clear information (about a case) we will proceed without any complaints (being lodged)... but as of now, we do not have any clear information on the case," he said. During a special operation last week, several staff and officials of a government department in Penang, as well as Putrajaya, were arrested under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (SOSMA) for allegedly being involved in the case. Earlier today, Bernama had reported that an assistant director at the Penang National Registration Department (JPN) would be charged in the Sessions Court tomorrow over suspected involvement in a syndicate to sell MyKad to foreigners in the state. - Read more: malaysiakini.com
