If there are other offences involved, the police will start another probe and investigation papers will be opened.

Police will investigate a report against Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Tan Sri Azam Baki following his admission that his younger brother had used his securities account to acquire shares in several companies.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin said they had taken note of the police report lodged against Azam.

“We just received the report, but we will investigate according to certain Acts,” he said at a press conference.

Earlier yesterday, PKR Youth chief and Johor Baru MP Akmal Nasrullah Mohd Nasir, Fahmi Fadzil (Lembah Pantai), Maria Chin Abdullah (Petaling Jaya) and Dr Mazlee Malik (Simpang Rengam) lodged the report at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters.

“Based on what was reported, the matter is related to the Securities Commission (SC) Act. So, they (SC) will investigate, and the police will then obtain information on the investigation’s developments.

“If there are other offences involved, the police will start another probe and investigation papers will be opened,” Hamzah told reporters today.

In a recent statement, the SC said that the commission would be calling in Azam to obtain an explanation and to verify statements made for evidence collection.
