The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) has found that other offences exist in the case of the $6.94 million (RM28.95 million) that went missing from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) and has asked relevant enforcement agencies to investigate further.

“The investigation paper has been returned for further action,” a statement from the ACG today read.

MACC had earlier said that three senior officers had been arrested in relation to the case, which involved money seized from “a former department head” that had gone missing.

The trio had been remanded for six days to assist in an investigation into abuse of power and malpractice in relation to the missing funds.

A blog named Edisi Siasat had alleged in August that a portion of the money confiscated from a Cyberjaya condominium in 2018, believed to belong to former Malaysian External Intelligence Organisation director-general Hasanah Abdul Hamid, had gone missing, and claimed it had been taken by three MACC officers.

The post asserted that after Hasanah was granted a discharge not amounting to an acquittal by the High Court this year, she had attempted to reclaim the money, only to learn that some of it had gone missing and had been replaced with counterfeit money.
