Police probing allegations of illicit affair involving senior MACC official

SEPANG: Police are investigating allegations that a senior official of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) had an affair with a married woman under Section 498 of the Penal Code, said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.

“The investigation is on-going. We are in the process of determining the facts, if need be, we will arrest.

“Give us (police) ample time to investigate this matter. It is not easy for us to detect but we are trying hard to find who is responsible,” he told reporters when asked to comment on a senior MACC official who allegedly had a relationship with a married woman.

Mohamad Fuzi was earlier reported to have confirmed that police had received a report about a senior MACC official who was alleged to have a secret relationship with a married woman.

Section 498 of the Penal Code refers to the offence of enticing a married woman with intent to have illicit intercourse. If found guilty, a person could be imprisoned up to two years or fined, or both.

Mohamad Fuzi said so far, the MACC had not lodged a police report on the allegations against its senior official.
