Report on MACC pay rise “untrue”

KUALA LUMPUR, 10 Nov 2009: Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz has refuted a news report that the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will propose to the government that the salaries of ministers, deputy ministers and elected representatives be increased.

He said that a MACC officer had contacted him this morning over the report, which appeared on the front page of an English-language daily.

“I don’t know about this. The MACC called me this morning and denied all this, they did not make any statement; it’s not finalised,” he told reporters at Parliament lobby today.

The report, quoting a senior government source, said the move was to check abuse of power and graft among elected representatives.

Nazri said the suggestion was not tenable in the current economic situation. — Bernama
