PUTRAJAYA – The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission had never sought advice from the late DPP Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais on investigations relating to 1Malaysia Development Bhd or Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, said MACC chief commissioner Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed.
He said Kevin Morais was transferred out of the MACC in July 2014, one year before the investigations into 1MDB even began, and never attended any of the special task force meetings chaired by the former Attorney General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail.
“Therefore, Kevin could not be, and was not, involved in writing any charge sheet relating to 1MDB or the Prime Minister. Any statement to the contrary is completely false,” he said in a statement here Thursday.
He added that Attorney General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali and MACC investigations director Datuk Azam Baki publicly confirmed in September and December last year respectively that Kevin Morais was never involved in any investigation relating to 1MDB or the Prime Minister.
“Kevin’s death was a tragedy. He should be allowed to rest in peace and not used like a political football,” he said. – BERNAMA
