MACC Submitted The Full Investigation Paper On TSMA In 2012 To AGC
The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) would like to clarify news reports quoting Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, demanding the Commission to explain, as to why the former Sabah Chief Minister, Tan Sri Musa Aman was not charged previously.
The Commission had already conducted its investigations into Tan Sri Musa, after which the investigation paper on the accused was submitted to the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) on July 2012 for further action.
However, the AGC then, decided not to pursue with any charges as they were of the view that the investigation was related to political donation.
At that particular time, it was the policy of the AGC not charging any cases related to political donation.
However, the MACC reviewed the investigation paper against Tan Sri Musa few months ago, upon receiving new information with regards to the case.
MACC had resubmitted the Investigation Paper to the AGC to be reviewed. The Attorney General then decided to charge Tan Sri Musa with 35 corruption charges under Section 11(a) of the Anti-Corruption Act 1997. He was charged on Nov 5 2018.
