The country's main civil service union Cuepacs has reminded politicians not to train their guns on government officers during the ongoing election period, in what appears to be a response to a PKR leader's attack on top graft buster Azam Baki.

Cuepacs, which brings together more than 100 civil service unions with some 1.2 million members, said there were some politicians who would become emotional when addressing their audiences. 

"However, that does not justify open attacks or threats against civil servants," said Cuepacs president Adnan Mat.

Last night, PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli said a PH government would "look for" Azam if it won the general election this weekend.

"Saturday we vote. After we win the elections, we will look for Azam Baki," he said during a ceramah in Johor Bahru.

His remarks followed a Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) investigation into allegations surrounding Invoke Solutions, a PKR-linked company headed by Rafizi.

Rafizi claimed that MACC had raided his office, although the anti-graft body said its officers were there to get documents related to the investigation.

Adnan said the investigation was not supposed to be public knowledge, as was the case with all probes conducted by MACC.

"The matter only became known when the politician involved disclosed it to the public," he said.

"All parties should understand that civil servants act based on the law and with a high spirit of professionalism without any consideration of party politics."
