A former chief of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) who was allegedly featured in an audio tape showing efforts to sabotage investigations into the 1MDB scandal has been given a senior position in a holding firm.
Dzulkifli Ahmad, who resigned as the MACC chief commissioner following the change of government in 2018, was appointed as the independent and non-executive chairman of Joe Holding Bhd, a company involved in the manufacturing of automotive battery components as well as used cars.
The announcement was made in a bourse filing yesterday.
Dzulkifli headed the Commercial Crime Unit at the Attorney-General’s Chambers before he became the MACC chief in 2016, at the height of the revelations linked to 1MDB and former prime minister Najib Razak.
He was allegedly among those featured in nine audio clips of phone conversations released by former MACC chief commissioner Latheefa Koya in 2019.
The conversations pointed to alleged attempts to exonerate Najib from allegations of misappropriating billions of dollars in funds linked to 1MDB.
