The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) today said it had studied the investigation paper on the loss of case items involving over US$6 million (RM25 million) received from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) last month.

In a statement, it said other offences had been discovered which would require further investigation by the relevant enforcement agencies.

“The investigation paper has been returned for further action,” the AGC added.

The paper regarding some US$6.94 million that had gone missing was submitted to the AGC on Sept 28.

The police said on Sept 23 that three senior officers from MACC who were previously remanded for six days as part of the investigation would be summoned for questioning.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Abd Jalil Hassan said his department would also call the owner of the money, former Malaysian External Intelligence Organisation director-general Hasanah Abdul Hamid.

The senior officers had been detained under Section 117 of the Criminal Procedure Code to assist the probe into allegations of power abuse and misconduct.

MACC said then that it would not compromise or protect any of its officers found to be involved in criminal acts.
