KUALA LUMPUR- The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) will meet Parti Ekonomi Rakyat Malaysia (PEKIRA) president, Datuk Redzuan Abdullah, in regards to his claim on the involvement of several people in the influx of illegal immigrants in the country.
MACC Investigation Division Director, Datuk Simi Abd Ghani, said MACC would obtain more information on Redzuan’s allegation and called for swift investigation on several people including a former home minister and family, whom he said were responsible for the problem.
“MACC views the matter seriously and will take appropriate actions in accordance to the law if there are elements of bribery and abuse of power.
“We will investigate everyone involved including the agents who were harbouring the illegal immigrants,” he said.
Redzuan had on June 21 lodged a police report, urging the authorities to carry out investigation against several people responsible for the flooding of illegal immigrants.
He had said he was also willing to furnish evidence of the wrongdoings to MACC.
He was reported as saying that the influx of illegal immigrants had posed various problems as they seemed to have monopolised trades and stealing employment opportunities from the locals.- New Straits Times
