Selangor ruler Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah today ordered for the trials of corruption cases to be sped up.
He said courts should not entertain the postponement of cases without solid reasons because the people were fed up and tired of seeing prosecutions dragging on for too long.
In a post on the Selangor Royal Office Facebook site, Sultan Sharafuddin also called for the eradication of corruption in Selangor to ensure that it would not become a bigger problem and harm the future generations and hurt the community.
The call was made over the sultan’s fears on the rising number of corruption cases, especially in Selangor.
Earlier, Sultan Sharafuddin granted an audience to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Azam Baki who also briefed him at Istana Bukit Kayangan.
“The sultan expressed his concerns at the latest development. Sultan Sharafuddin also hoped that MACC would conduct careful and transparent investigations so that the perpetrators charged in court do not get away easily,” said the statement.
Also present at the two-hour meeting was the Raja Muda of Selangor Tengku Amir Shah.
