The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has begun investigations into the pollution of Sungai Gong in Rawang which saw nearly five million residents in the Klang Valley and Selangor affected by unscheduled water cuts.

It said in a statement today that the probe was to look into elements of corrupt practices involving any party, including enforcement agencies.

“MACC urges anyone with information on the issue to come forward and cooperate with us,” it added.

Yesterday, Bernama reported that a factory suspected to be involved in the river pollution was found to have operated without a licence since 2014.

Residents in the Klang Valley and Selangor experienced a disruption in water supply since Thursday, when the Sungai Selangor Phases 1,2 and 3 and Rantau Panjang water treatment plants were shut down due to pollution at the raw water source.

In another development, Pahang MACC has started investigations into the matter of state government land in Raub which has been turned into illegal durian orchards.

“MACC is gathering evidence and scrutinising several documents related to the parties involved and asks anyone with information on the matter to report directly to the nearest MACC office,” it said.

On Sept 2, Bernama reported that MACC chief commissioner Azam Baki had directed Pahang MACC to obtain further information from the Raub District and Land Office as well as the Pahang state secretary’s office regarding the matter.

On Aug 1, the Pahang government began taking action against the farmers who were said to have illegally cultivated durian plantations on state government land around Raub.
