MACC denies issuing statement on investigation into PSD D-G for corruption

KUALA LUMPUR, AUG 24 — The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has denied issuing a media statement relating to a corruption investigation involving the Public Services Department (PSD) director-general, dated August 23, 2023, which has been circulating on social media.

The MACC said in a statement today the act of issuing such a fake statement is clearly malicious and misleading to the public.

“As such, the public is advised not to spread or share any uncertain or false information,” the commission said.

It was referring to a media statement titled SPRM Siasat Dakwaan Rasuah Melibatkan Ketua Pengarah Perkhidmatan Awam Datuk Dr Zulkapli Mohamed (MACC Investigates Corruption Allegations Involving the Director-General of Public Services Datuk Dr Zulkapli Mohamed’) that was falsely claimed to have been issued by the commission.
