Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki said the investigation paper (IP) has already been referred to the Attorney General.

“We have completed investigations and have submitted the IP to the Attorney General.

“We are waiting for their decision,” he told reporters at the MACC headquarters on Thursday (Feb 23).

Last month, MACC detained two senior company directors to assist in the investigation into the sale.

A MACC source said the two individuals, aged 49 and 59 years old, were believed to be the middlemen who managed the bribery and a managing director of a company said to have taken over the shares of KL Tower, adding that both of them were arrested at the MACC headquarters after giving their statements.

Previously, the MACC was reported to have investigated allegations about the suspicious sale of shares and the take-over of KL Tower maintenance concession from Menara Kuala Lumpur Sdn Bhd, a company wholly owned by Telekom Malaysia (TM).

Several witnesses, including senior TM officials as well as the companies involved, have had their statements taken to assist in the investigation. – The Star
