PENANG, 23 April 2009: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has decided statements recorded when investigating former Penang Deputy Chief Minister 1, Mohamad Fairus Khairuddin did not provide the basis for prosecution.
In a statement here today, MACC said the decision was made after studying the case and considering the statements recorded in the course of investigation.
“MACC’s legal and prosecuting division decided that the statements have no basis for prosecution. The Attorney-General also agreed with the decision,” said the statement.
MACC opened investigation papers after an allegation was made against two state Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) leaders that they were involved in a corruption case pertaining to a quarry in Seberang Perai.
The allegation by Kepala Batas PKR youth chief Amizuddin Ahmat in February forced Mohammad Fairus to resign as Penang Deputy Chief Minister I and Penanti state assemblyperson. — Bernama
