KUALA LUMPUR – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has terminated the services of its officer Muhammad Nazrin Abdullah effective Nov 1 for being involved in drugs.
MACC deputy chief commissioner (Management and Professionalism) Datuk Seri Mohd Jamidan Abdullah said the MACC Disciplinary Board made the decision after Muhammad Nazrin was found guilty by a court in September.
Mohd Jamidan said Muhammad Nazrin was found guilty of an offence under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
“MACC takes a serious view of this case and cannot compromise on its officers violating the organisation’s rules,” he said in a statement today.
On Nov 7, Muhammad Nazrin also faced another charge of threatening a relative, Mohammad Faris Ngatiman with a machete in a house in Kampung Parit Jarum Tengah, Bukit Gambir, Segamat at about 7.10 am on Sept 21.
He was also remanded by the Segamat Magistrate Court from Oct 29 to Nov 1 to assist investigations into the domestic violence case. – BERNAMA
